JA: The Dermatologist can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. When did the rash first appear? Has your daughter used any medication for this?
Customer: about 2 weeks ago
JA: Has she seen a dermatologist about the rash?
Customer: no just the GP
JA: Anything else in her medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no

attached the pics and the blood test results

Thanks for the details

This seems like a purpuric rash

It can be a small vessel vasculitis or Henoch Schonlein purpura

Another possibility could be a viral infection

You need to have her blood counts and also renal function and urinalysis

If the rash does not improve then she will require a biopsy of the rash for diagnosis

Please do let me know if you have any other question
