Please post a picture of three spots on the leg.

did you receive the picture?

Yes, I am reviewing them.

These red spots are likely due to viral exanthema.

So they are not indicative of anything serious.

Having said that, a high-grade fever does need complete blood counts and a comprehensive metabolic panel for the evaluation.

You may contact your GP or pediatrician for a physical exam, blood work, and chest x-ray.

I hope her symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
