Going on 2 weeks, our nearly 3 year old grandson has been covered with a red rash on entire body. His parents took him Monday to see a lady pediatrician and she had no idea what it was. He has already been immunized for measles, mumps, etc.

My 8 year old threw up all night. Ran fever the next day. Would not eat anything for two days afterwards. He is eating small amounts now. He also had required a bite like rash with white heads around his genital but not on his penis. Now he has them on his penis. Not sure what to think maybe chicken pox but everything I've read says they start around the face, head and trunk.
