please help worried mother 9 month old baby with rash and temperature

hi i have a son who is 9 months old last night from 7pm he started to feel hot my parents were babysitting and rang me about 10 as his temperature was getting very high when i returned home i took his temperature and it was 39.2' this was AFTER my mum and dad had removed clothing, applied a cold flannel AND gave him calpol hour earlier. He was obviously tired but every time he fell asleep he would wake abruptly crying. During the night his temperature was 'yo-yoing' and this morning he has a red blotchy rash all over his body please help

If you can find a doctor on the weekend that would be best. Did he eat anything new? I get a fever with hives after eating certain things that I'm allergic to.

Re: please help worried mother 9 month old baby with rash and temperature

hello thank you for reply. He hasn't eaten anything new and the rash has now turned into spots all over his body. His temperature has now gone down but he has still got the spots covering his body. I got extremely worried so went to out of hours doctor and he thinks it may be chicken pox but even he admits that he isn't 100% sure. Any advice of when i should be really concerned as i will take him to hospital?
Many thanks
