Hi,
I can very well understand your concern!
You say there was a purple XXXXXXX that has faded now!
It can be a scratch XXXXXXX or minor injury with a toy or any play tool!

What bug she had? Viral fever??

It is unlikely that this is related to the bug as it is only a single lesion and that too a transient one!

Just keep watching!
She should be OK.

Take care
God bless
