Thank you for your query.

Viral infections are known to produce rash after 2-3 days of fever which appears in your son. In most of the cases the rash appears as the temperature normalizes. I suggest that you can wait and watch. However to be on the safer side get him examined by a doctor and do the basic investigations as suggested by him.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.

Hi dear,
your son is probably suffering from a viral illness. Since his fever has come down probably he is recovering. Rash could be part of his viral illness. No need to worry he will be better soon. Just apply some calamine lotion and keep a watch. If lesions persist then there is no harm in getting a pediatrician's opinion.

Take care
