any ideas of what this rash could be

Ok so my 13 to dd has been complaining that her throat hurt yesterday and today. I'm pretty sure its not strep. We are not strep people (she's never had it and neither have i) and no fever. But then tonight she gets in the shower and notices this on the inside of her shins. It's slightly warmer then body temp, no bite marks that I can see, hasn't worn new or unwashed clothing. Wth? Any ideas?

It looks like hives. I'd get her checked out.

Any chance she uses tampons? Taken anything with aspirin in it?

I will move this to parenting.

Any fever?


It doesnt look like hives (they are like raised welts). I was thinking TSS or reyes syndrome. Maybe scarlett fever? But i think thats a chest rash and red tongue and the rash feels sandpapery.

Personally with her age and ther symmetry of the rash I would go to the ER. And I am NOT an doctor going type of person.

The symmetry on both legs is weird. I keep checking every hour to see if its spead and it hasn't . No fever. As long as it doesn't spread tonight, I'm going to try to hold off on the er/dr.

My 2 yo has an appointment on Wednesday for her 2 year visit.. but I don't want to wait that long for k.

could it be that the water was too hot in the shower? I get rashy like that sometimes after I shave in a very hot shower.

Has she gotten new boots or anything that could be rubbing her legs there?

Nope. No new boots. She was with her dad this past weekend so I asked him as well... And no new clothing or boots. And she didn't ride over the weekend, even though they went to the stables, because she wasn't feeling well.
