If he's acting normal I would just keep an eye on him. My son was so lethargic and he didn't want his bottle or anything. It was very scary.



Is there a health phone number you can call in your area? They are really helpful and know what questions to ask. They can also tell you if you should take him to the doctor or not.

My oldest son had a rash like that when he was about 16 months. They first thought it was menningacoccal (sp?) and we were in isolation at the children's hospital for 4 days and the tests came back negative. They then said it must have been an allergy to something but he never got it again.



Is your child lethergic and not eating/drinking? If that's the case I would take them to the doctor as soon as you can. It may turn out to be nothing but it's better to be safe than sorry.
