rush and no epitite

Hi Doc, my son was very hot on Thursday evening due to teething but woke up feel fine in the monring as I had given him the supposetries his doctor gave me for the high fever, but now he does not want food which I am thinking he is still sore on the gums, so I gave him a multivitamin, he then got rush around his eyes and body but not on arms and legs, not sure what was the cause as I havent taken him to the doctor yet and he only eats 3 or spoons of food and only drinks NIDO and can eat yougut but not finish even the smaller one for kids, my son is 17 months old and will be going for his 1 year six months injection on the 20 January, could it be meseals or some kind of an allergy, can I have him allegex? thanks

I think your baby has an illness called Roseola or 'baby measles'. This is not an allergy.His fever should soon settle now that the rash has appeared and he will begin eating as soon as he feels better.
