So my DD came out with a rash on her chest & back on Friday night. She had no temps etc and was her normal self.
DH took her to the Drs Saturday morning for a check up to be sure. They said it was a viral rash and we can give her claratyne if it was annoying her.
It isn't annoying her and she still has no temps etc.
She is supposed to go back to daycare today - would it be ok to send her? Apart from the rash she is fine! She was really sick about 2wks ago but has been good ever since.
The rash hasn't changed or spread eitherImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1434925493.382087.jpg

Rash - ok for daycare?

Given that you don't know much about it other than 'it's a viral rash' I wouldn't take her until you get further detail from GP,or at least confirmation from her that it's not contagious. Perhaps give her or the surgery a call.

To be honest I wouldn't send her but you could always just give daycare a call and see what they say.

The GP didn't say much at all about it. Only there was something like it last week. But nothing about if it's contagious or anything because they don't know either.
They said because she has no other symptoms she is fine.
I'll take her in and if they aren't sure I'll take her to the Drs again.

I used to work in child care/family day care. I've had many children come in with a rash that's not contagious (doctor clearance) and have had it pass on to other children. Please call your centre before you take her in. Not wanting to sound awful but you just can't be too careful with these things.

I would keep her home.
I had a rash from my toes to my neck for 3 days a few weeks ago. Dr said similar. I was SO itchy.
Turns out it was allergies- dust from the new sheets H had put on the bed before washing them.
I work in childcare, no way would I take the risk if unsure.

She is at home with Dad
He ended up finishing a job early so came home to spend the day with her to be on the safe side.
