Thanks for the query

The data that you have provided could suggest a possibility of viral infection, mostly varicella. This requires medical attention at the earliest. I request you to visit a local pediatrician at the earliest.

Good thing is that the child is active. Do not worry, the child will improve.

Hope this suffices. I will be available for guidance.

Best wishes
