Looks like your little one has developed fever with rash mostly due to some virus.Since now there is no loose motions with blood you can relax and this viral fever will resolve in few days.However see to it your daughter is well hydrated and eats well balanced diet.You could apply calamine lotion if the rash is itchy to soothe her.At present you could just fix up an appointment with her docter for confirmation of the dignosis .
