Customer Question

Hi I took my 2 and half year old to a&e last night with slight temp head cold type symptoms and small purple rash on her side. I first noticed rash at 16.15 yest. At the hospital they did blood work and monitored the rash.blood was clear and rash didn't spread at all so we were left home @ 11.30. Today rash hasn't spread so basically I'm just wondering if anything bad would it show up in bloods??

Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you.
The probable reason for rash and cold symptoms is a simple viral infection. This normally doesn't alter the blood works.
Something bad would have, though, so there is no reason to worry. He will be well soon.

Would Meningitis have shown up

Yes, and your child would have high temperature and massive dizziness.
