4. My child developed a rash a few days after getting the MMR vaccine? Page Top
The rash is likely to be a reaction to the vaccine, which contains live but weakened viruses.
This rash, which consists of red dots on the chest and neck, looks a bit like the one caused by measles. The red dots may become raised bumps and in rare cases may spread to the rest of a child's body.
