Red splotches on forehead, starting at eyebrows and into hairline, taking tylenol for fever. Side effects ?

Redness, splotchy on forehead , starting at eyebrows and up into the hairline - no where else on body. My daughter is 4 mos + 2 weeks old and just got her 4 mos shots on Friday. I ve been giving her tylenol to manage a fever which is starting to dissipate (now hovering at ~99 without medication since 11am). This morning I noticed the red splotchiness around her eyebrows and temples; it s now 8pm and the light red splotches pretty much cover her forehead up into hairline. Is this from her fever?

Thanks for your query.
symptoms mentioned by you are suggestive of some allergic reaction.i suggest to apply calamine lotion 3 to 4 times over her forehead.note her activity and if rashes spread to other parts of body,fever rises,or she becomes lethargic then you should get her checked by a pediatrician.
your daughter will be fine soon.
God bless.
