Help!! What is this rash??

My dd has this rash. It started earlier this week on her bottom and has spread slowly up her back. My first thought was chicken pox but I don't remember what it looked like when I had it (as a kid) and she's vaxed. She's also had a runny nose.

I looked up chicken pox pictures and they look different, with blisters.

Hmm...

They look more like the photos of the breakthrough varicella in a vaccinated child. So maybe that?

Any other guesses?

I'll take her to the doc tomorrow. We have several immune compromised friends/family and I want to know what we're dealing with.

I am really not sure but I would take her to the dr JIC and find out what it is. Is it all over the body or just up top where the shirt is at?

It started on her lower back/butt, and has slowly spread up her back and around the front of her lower belly. I'm taking her in tomorrow. :-)

I hope she feels better, do you have any benadryl? Is she itchy?

She is SUUUPER itchy. She keeps crawling into my lap (during the day) and asking me to "skach" her. Poor lamb. I'm not sure if we have any, but I started putting calamine lotion on it today and that seemed to help. I hadn't really thought much of it the first couple days bc all of us (me, dd, & DS) get teeny little itchy patches sometimes that usually go away within 12 hours. I've always assumed it was food related, and have tried to track the cause but never found anything consistent.
