Doctor: Thank you for your questionI also note the picture and the indicated age of 8-12. because of the presence of diapers , I assume the age is younger than statedAny high fevers (more than 37.6 degreee celcius) persiting for more than 48 hours needs to be examined by a medical doctor sooner rather than later.the appearance of a rash helps narrow down possibilities which include strep throat, roseolla and viral infection but a proper exam and thraoth swab is needed to direct treatment.
