The red bumps looked like hundreds of mosquito bites all over her body. They itched but not nearly as bad as I would have thought. Her poor little bum and ears itched the worst! It looked horrible...

I decided to wait a couple days before taking her into the doctor because a few people told me it looked like heat rash and I assumed so too. Of course, the worst of it came over the weekend, meaning we couldn't schedule an appointment with her pediatrician. Her temperature was just a little bit high and she could not sleep because she itched so badly.
We took her to the ER doctor and they told us she had a less common virus. He didn't say what it was or how she got it... (I bet they never really know what people have specifically...) But, Miss A was prescribed a liquid steroid type medicine. She took it once a day this week and with every dose I could see significant healing. After about 4-5 days, she fully recovered!
