Toddler has bumpy rash all over his body with a temperature

My 24 mos old toddler had a fever of 103, I took him to the Dr. and I was told it was a viral. Four days later he got a rash all over his body didnt itchy (couldnt hardly feel it when I touched it) I still took him to the ER because he was still runing a fever of 101. I was then told it was Roseola . not to worry give him alot to drink. Now 5 days later he is back to normal but he caught another rash which started with a red noise, itchy scalp and spread all over his body. It is kind of pink on his the face but flesh color on the rest of the body. Has no fever eating playing normaly... Just a little worry why it came back this will be the 3rd time him getting this the 1st was just a lil rash no fever I was told it was a viral. 2nd time he had fever and I was told it was the roseola and this 3rd time the Dr is telling me it could be a allergic reaction to something he ate... but I have not intruduce him to anything new. How long will it take for it to clear up its been 3 days and every time i take him a bath or so i see more

My 24 mos old toddler had a fever of 103, I took him to the Dr. and I was told it was a viral.
== 2 year old kids may get viralk fevers upto 10 a year

Four days later he got a rash all over his body didnt itchy (couldnt hardly feel it when I touched it) I still took him to the ER because he was still runing a fever of 101. I was then told it was Roseola.
== often rash come a little later than fever and doesnt last more than 3 days, usually due to nursery contacts.

not to worry give him alot to drink
=== most fever rash heal on their own, docs are woried mainly of fever related dehydration , seizure and reduced intake, so they advice only liberal liquids and paracetamol.

. Now 5 days later he is back to normal but he caught another rash which started with a red noise, itchy scalp and spread all over his body
=== itchy rashes are often allergic. and usually follow medicines,diet ro contact with something as simple as a flower. they look like hives.

. It is kind of pink on his the face but flesh color on the rest of the body.
== lets call it erythema all over body thats itchy

Has no fever eating playing normaly...
== a sign of recovery from previous fever

Just a little worry why it came back this will be the 3rd time
=== i hope she is immunised as per age.

him getting this the 1st was just a lil rash no fever I was told it was a viral
== true, most rashes are viral when they recover in 3-5 days

. 2nd time he had fever and I was told it was the roseola
== its the same viral now has been given a name

and this 3rd time the Dr is telling me it could be a allergic reaction to something he ate...
== possible as it is itchy blotches

but I have not intruduce him to anything new.
=== 99 percent of time we cant locate the allergen

How long will it take for it to clear up its been 3 days and every time i take him a bath or so i see more
=== maintain hydration, revisit doctor if any danger signs or worsening.

there are many rashes common in kids and usually a kid may get from 0 to 5 rashes of viral type till 5 years.

I get itchy, bumpy rashes that come and go every once in a while. It always appears in random places on my body. I changed all of my sheets and put some freshly-washed clothes on. Besides my cat, there isn t anything that could possibly trigger an allergic reaction. (Though I was never allergic to cats) We don t even have furniture in the living room yet. My mom dusts, cleans, and vaccums the house every morning and night. We are generally cautious about dust mites because we have a sick baby. Is there anything I m missing that could trigger this reaction?

My 3 year old granddaughter has a red bumpy rash all over her body. She had a small rash this morning on her neck which went away. Now, 12 hours later, my daughter called and it is covering most of her body. She is itchy and uncomfortable. We can not think of any new foods or detergents used.

I am a 57-year-old female. I have flu like symptoms along with a rash. The rash is over my entire body but appears more on my arms and legs. The rash includes tiny red bumps that itch. The bumps go away and then new ones appear. This has lasted for about 5 days. Any ideas? I have had all of my immunizations.

My son is two months old. He has been having problems with constipation, distended abdomen and partial rectal prolapse since he was born. He also has a red bumpy rash all over his face and head which seems to get worse after he eats. We had him on nutrimigen for three weeks which did not work and now we have him on similac alemintum which he has been on for about two weeks. He still has not improved at all.

My little chihuahua has had bad diarrhea since yesterday...she was up all night and had 1 firm white stool all the other spots were brown very runny stool. The only change I have made this week is adding burts bees ointment to a rash on her belly she had been scratching and bitting at. I googled using the burts bees prior to putting it on her and it said it was safe for dogs. Last year she had the same rash and I used bag balm ointment ..they were out thats why i switched. Will she be ok?
