How can persistent cough and rashes in the back be treated?

My daughter has had a persistent cough since December 25th, when she started having some flu like symptoms. After a week of feeling horrible and cough she went into urgent care where she was diagnosed with bronchitis and given a steroid for a few days, the cough has persisted and she can get no relief from it. tonight she started getting a fever of 101.8 and has broke out with a rash on her back and across her forehead, she has taken an ibuprofen and a cool shower, do you have any suggestions about what might be going on with the rash appearing now and also the persistent cough??
