It is difficult to be sure about your baby without being able to see him. The most likely diagnosis is Roseola or baby measles. Against this diagnosis is the fact that his fever was not all that high before the rash appeared and also the fact that his rash is so itchy.However there is very little else that it could be. It does not sound like chicken pox or the real measles.The rash of Roseola disappears after 2 to 3 days.
I am not happy about giving your baby Stopayne syrup which contains codeine. Codeine causes constipation in babies.Perhaps that is why his tummy feels hard.Only use Panado.
