    strange rash on toddler's neck?
    An_263897 posted:
    My 20 month old daughter has been coughing a bit the past week and had a runny nose. she has had nop fever, and is playing and eating normally. Her nose is running but its clear. However this morning I noticed little reddish-purple lines on the back of her neck. They aren't long or straight, but they aren't exactly looking like spots either. They look like broken blood vessels. I am concerned where she has been coughing. She doesn't have the reash anywhere else. She hasn't vomitted. They don't look like petichia either however they do not blanch or fade when pressure is applied. anyone have any ideas? We wont have access to our nurse practicioner for awhile so I was thinking of taking her to the emerg though her behaviour seems perfectly normal.
