What's cute and silly and red all over?
Eleven days following her MMR vaccine and Kate has developed a rash on her torso and limbs. The doctor's office told me it is just a side effect of the shot and not to worry about it unless it lasts longer than 5 days.
When it first appeared last night I looked everywhere online for pictures of what "the side effect rash" would look like. I found nothing. Just in case there's another worried parent out there searching...this is what it looks like.

Thanks Jean-Marie... I'll just add scary rash to my list o' fears!
Thank you for posting that picture. I've been looking for pics of rashes on toddlers and this was the first one I found! Imagine that. I hope your daughter's rash cleared up quickly.
Thanks a bunch for posting that picture. My daughter had the MMR vaccine 10 days ago and today she's spiked a fever of 102.5 and has the little red bumps on her chest and back...looks just like the ones in the pic of your daughter. I've been searching for a picture of what the side effect rash looks like, and thanks to you..I've got a very good idea.
My daughter has the same exact rash right now. It appread 7 days (to the hour!!) after her MMR vaccine.
Thank You. My son had his MMR vaccine 10 days ago and just broke out in a similar rash. The only picture that came up under reaction to MMR vaccine was your little girl!! Thanks
Thank you so much for the information and picture. I thought that my son had Chicken Pox. He had the MMR shot exactly 10 days ago. You made my day a lot less stressful.
Thanks Jean-Marie! My husband and I just had our scare and this was the only picture that showed up in our search. Our daughter never had a reaction to the MMR, but our son did. Thanks again for relieving some stress out of our day!
Thanks for posting the picture. My daughter received the shot 10 days ago and now has a rash that looks just like your daughters. Thanks for showing a picture of what it looks like. You put my mind at ease.
Finally! I'm another mom who couldn't find pics of the MMR rash until I found your site. I think that's what my little one has. I appreciate it!
Thank you so much for posting this picture! We've looked everywhere for pictures of what the rash following the shot looks like, and this is the only one we've found. Our son's rash looks just like this, and the picture really eased our minds! God Bless!
Thanks for your photo! Our son had his MMR shot 16 days ago and has the same rash. Thank goodness for the internet!!
Thank you! Just like the others I was looking for a real photo or the rash after a MMR shot. Right now there are only random on the back and neck but, enough to make me wonder. It has been less than a week since the MMR so, at least I will not worry when it fully develops! Thanks again
Thanks so much, this is the only photo out there, my son had MMR 8 days ago and has fever and rash but the rash doesn't look like your daughters.....I wonder if his symptoms are viral???? hmmmmmm again, THANKS!!!!
Thanks for posting the pic of the rash. The internet is the first place I go to compare rashes on my girls.
Thank you for posting this picture the only picture I have been able to find, My son had a reaction to the MMR 7 days after getting the shot. We took him back to the DR. and they told us it wasn't a reaction to the shot but a food allergy, funny that he has been eating the same food for 12 months with no problems. The picture you posted show the same read spots my son has along with a low grade temp.
