The Baby Has A Reddish Rash On The Body.?
Good evening doctor, apologize in advance, I want to ask the doctor, my child is 1 year 2 months, has been coughing for a week (phlegm but can not come out phlegm / reaction) and colds then appear red spots like rashes all over his body, I have brought to the pediatrician, the doctor said my child had an infection due to sputum and his reaction could not come out so that the red rash appeared. His body temperature was relatively normal because it was recorded only once that his body temperature was above 38 ° C. His son was also still active and was not fussy and did not look scratched due to itching, what was the disease?

Reddish rashes that appear after or go hand in hand with a cold cough in children can be caused by various causes, including:
Hand foot mouth disease (HFMD) Measles Chickenpox Rubella Allergy Prickly heat Requires further information and direct examination to find out more clearly related to skin disorders in the form of rashes experienced by your child. Because the red rash can be distinguished into a sign of infection or non-infection based on the history of the disease and direct examination.
Rashes that occur on the mouth / face, feet and hands that were preceded by cold symptoms can be caused by a viral infection that causes HFMD. While the fever is initially high followed by sore throat, red watery eyes and a rash on the body can be caused by measles. In contrast to rubella which causes cold symptoms but is accompanied by periods of mild fever.
In addition, food allergies and drugs consumed can also trigger a rash in children. Food that is allergenic or consumption of drugs can trigger allergic reactions in children who have talent atopy (a tendency toward allergies). While prickly heat can occur in areas that often sweat, especially moist and covered clothes, such as the face, neck, chest, stomach, back to spread to the hands.
Rashes don't all cause itching. Therefore we need identification and direct examination to assess the exact cause of the condition that your child is experiencing.
It is advisable to conduct an examination directly to a pediatrician or dermatologist to get more complete information and evaluation.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
