Child with fever, runny nose, had rash on the body from armpits to diaper line. Are the two related?

My 21 month old son has had a rash on the left side of his body for about two weeks now. It s starts at his armpit and ends at his diaper line. It s mostly skin color bumps but there are areas where they are read. Small not large. Then on Wednesday (2 days ago) he developed a fever and runny nose- now infected green. It was clear until this morning. Is the rash and fever connected?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello. As you have descibed, the whole picture may fit into viral fever with rash and with super added bacterial infection. The skin lesion in these cases are almost allways generalised and not one sidded as you have revealed. So in such case its better to consult your pediatrician and start its specific treatment. Ofcourse, this fever and rash are very much connected. thank you.
