Pinprick rash


Hi Everyone,
I was just looking some advice. I discovered a pinprick rash on my dd (2yrs) back today, she's not had any jabs and is in great form, eating, drinking and being her usual self. The rash isn't annoying her and isn't itching. Ive stripped her and its not a heat rash. Whats worrying me is that its not disappearing when I do the glass test. Should I call a doctor or see how she is for the next bit?

hi,

I believe it is serious if it doesnt go under the pressure of a glass.

have you checked NHS direct website. best to speak to them or get baby to a dr quickly to check.

dont want to panic you but my advice is to get it checked out so your mind is at rest

Spoke to nhs direct who said to keep an eye on her that it sounds like an allergy, It isn't as bad now but will see if its still there in the morning and will be taking her to the doctor, Ive been checking on her every 30 minutes even though she's sleeping, I can' settle myself though she seems unfazed by it all

The glass test is for meningitis and the rash is pretty dark and is also one of the last symptoms to come up. Once the rash is there you would really know if your child was ill enough to have meningitis.

It's very common to get general viral rashes. Byron's had them a couple of times and a couple of days after tends to come down with some bug or other. It could also be from something else like skin irritation from clothing or toiletries.

Hope it clears soon so you can put your mind at rest.

I think they develop more than just a rash with meningitus so just keep an eye on it but you can never be too sure so if your worried go to the doctor with her.. Does she seem well in herself maybe its just from her clothes?

There was no other signs of illness but I couldnt settle so I took her to the doctors, they said that she might be coming down with something that hasn't decided to show yet but the rash is nothing to worry about and just to put some cream on it and it should clear up in a few days. I do tend to worry and panic over rashes, but lo has been through so much since she's born im sure a lite rash wont slow her down lol
