    Default Purple rash

    So today DD has a full face rash of purple and red spots. I wasn't concerned as yesterday she screamed and cried for 20 mins straight and I know that can give her a spotty face. But now one noticed she has tiny purple spots on her arms too, is there anyway this could have been caused by her crying? Does anyone else's child get the same thing?ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1451191673.870283.jpg

    Imo all purple rash should be seen by Dr as a on as possible

    Is it bleaching? Eg when put a glass on it does it keep its colour

    I agree.

    It occasionally happens to DD and my brothers as little kids but it usually went away with an hour or so

    In my non medical opinion it looks a little bit like petechiae. I would get it checked out to be safe.
