Do blotchy rashes on an infant s body require medical attention?

My 3 year old has a blotchy rash on her face legs and arms. It is warm to the touch and appeared after a warm day in a botanical garden. At first I thought it was from heat or a new plant exposure but it doesn t bother her at all and she seems perfectly normal.

Hello,

A blotchy rash on face, legs are arms which is warm to touch could be due to vasculitis or inflammation of blood vessels. Vasculitis is usually accompanied by pain. However, I suggest you to consult a pediatrician for clinical assessment, investigations and thus management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
