Infant has trunk rrash after Pertussin remedyThis was suspected Pertussis in my older toddler who was given Pertussin 30C twice and recovered quickly. We gave it to our 5 month old who came down with a fever. Her fever subsided and during that same day or maybe the day before, she started to have a rash from her stools. Dotted red. some with a white head like a pimple (these white heads show up in moist warm area of the skin). It spread from her bottom up her back and sides, under her arms and up her neck. It is worse behind her ears. It is also on her scalp. Her mood is good. She is eating well and nursing well. She is exclusively breastfed.
Any advice? my homeopath is out of town until Tuesday.

Also to elaborate on the rash: it is dotted with many dots close together. They disappear for a second when pressed on (thought one dark teeny spot doesn't...this is on her back). She has yellow & whitish crusty stuff behind her ears as well.
