Can you identify this rash in two easy photos? We sure can't.
I noticed this rash on Sheridan's back late this afternoon and my mind immediately began to race. She's had the varicella vaccination, so I don't think it's a mild case of chickenpox. Is it? She's up to date on all her other vaccinations so I know it's not measles, mumps, or rubella. What could it be?
The internet is a terrible thing if you're a worrier like me. Type in "skin rashes" under Google images and you'll see some of the nastiest rashes ever. Go ahead, I'll wait.
She has not complained of any itching and I've yet to see her scratch. She hasn't had a fever, a runny nose or a sore throat. My first reaction was to think it could be impetigo. But she doesn't have any of the blisters, fluid, or crust. She just has a tan colored rash over her entire back, and a few sporadic spots on her stomach.
I'm taking her to the doctor tomorrow, though I have little faith that he'll be able to correctly diagnose her. Can you?
