What causes raised lumps on the body with fever?

My granddaughter is 1. She has had some weird things occurring since she had her 1 year vacinations. Not sure it is related at all tho. June 15th she started to get these small red , raised bumps randomly on her body. They looked like chicken pics without the puss. I could tell they bothered her. My daughter took her to the pediatrician and they were not concerned. She then started to run a low grade fever for 2 days and then a fever that spiked to 103.9 degrees.we took her to the hospital. They did a cat herder on her and said its a virus just treat the symptoms. When this is going on she was very tired and cried a lot like something hurt her. This went on for 3 more days taking us to right around June 19th....we ll this started all over again on Monday of this week. Exact same symptoms.started with bumps (she still has them)now fever crying sleeping. She went to pendent ricin on Wednesday.again they say nothing to be concerned about. Funny thing about the bumps......they start off raised and then they end with a small scab?

Hi...though I do not have the luxury of seeing and diagnosing the skin condition your grandchild is having, I feel that whatever you are describing fits into hand foot mouth disease or any other viral exanthem.
Both of the above mentioned conditions do not require any specific medication and both conditions are self limiting.
I can tell you one thing, whether a diagnosis is made or not - an active kid is a healthy kid. As far as kids are concerned, activity is more I important than symptoms.
