hi welcome,
whether the rashes along with fever? then you should take more care of child and take blood tests for any meningitis is there?
if it comes after fever it may be a Petechiae due to the rupture of subcutaneous vessels at that time. why it present only on arms and legs due to the shifting of the blood which is collected by the help of gravitational force to the depended areas.this Petechiae will clear by itself.
thanking you
