My dd who is 17 months woke up from her nap yesterday afternoon with these little red bumps on her chest, back and some on her face and neck. They aren't fluid filled and they aren't like a pimple, just little red bumps. They are not on her legs or arms either. She is fine otherwise with no fever. Could it be a food allergy or heat rash if it's not on her arms or legs? They seem to be a bit worse this morning:-(
Sorry such a crappy pic.

It looks like roseloa(sp?) to me. DS had it at 15 months and had a high fever for a few days, but some kids never have any symptoms but the rash. If that's it, it's so not a big deal, especially if she isn't running a fever.

Re: Name this Rash...

is it hot? I always think contact dermitis or heat rash first before I go to anything sickness wise. if it's hot it's probably heat rash, or if you used new detergent or soap it could be that. My kids are notoriously rashy for no reason. My husband and I are too tho. If there was a fever and such I'd think something else but since she's otherwise fine I'd go in this direction.

Could be anything!! But I would say roseola or heat rash. Neither of which are cause for alarm or anything. Keep an eye on it and make sure she doesn't get extremely worse or spike a high fever. But she should be fine in a day or two

She had a weird fever about 3-4 days before the rash showed up. It wasn't super high only like 101.5 and it only lasted for about 24 hours. She had no other symptoms till the rash that showed up yesterday.
Whatever it may be thanks for putting my mind at rest:-)

That definitely makes me think it's roseola. The rash typically shows up when they're on the mend. I think DS had 1 or 2 full days between his fever and when the rash showed up.

Fever with no symptoms then a rash on the trunk is roseola and no worries! It will clear up on it's own and doesn't cause discomfort.
