On Friday my two year old dd(unvaxed) started to develop a rash on the right side of her body around to her shoulder blade. It goes from the inside of her armpit down to her waist. It wasnt this red on Friday. She has had no fever, it doesnt bother her, she isnt acting any different than she normally does. We havent changed her diet, soaps, nothing. Everything is the same. I looked up pictures of Rubella and it looks considerably like what she has.
I called her Naturopath, but, he is out until mid-Jan. I can take her to see another doctor, but, im having a hard time doing that since she doesnt seem bothered at all by it.

I have pics of it, but, not sure if its ok to post them.


Should I be concerned? Anything I should be doing? Should I take her in to confirm or deny, or just keep doing what im doing? She is on probiotics and SA.

Thanks for any help or ideas!

Sounds like you have it covered. I would just make sure to stay away from any pregnant mamas or newborns.

Thank you for your response.

If she happened to get it from someone who has recently been vaxed, would she have a milder case of it or is that just for people who actually received the vax. Or am I totally off base here. LOL

No way to know. Rubella is a very mild disease anyway.
