    Rash and Swollen joints

    My 2 1/2 year old woke up from a wonderful nap yesterday with a rash on her stomach, chest, back, arms, and legs. She also complained of knee pain when my Mom (who watches her while I work) looked at them both were swollen red and hot and painful to touch. Took her to Urgent care because her regular Doc did not have any appt left for the day. Urgent care referred us to the ER. After blood work and urinalysis all coming back clear we were d/c'd to come home. Now home this morning knees are still swollen but, not red or as painful, however, her great toe joints on both feet are now swollen and painful and her middle fingers on both hands. Going to her regular doc this afternoon, but just wondering if any opinions are out there????
