Looking for info...

Hi...I have a 14 month old son who has been back and forth to the ER the last two days for RSV.
Yesterday, he broke out in a rash all over his body...looked almost like chicken pox. Took him back to the ER for labored breathing again, and was told that his new symptoms look like the symptoms of Kowasakis Disease. The doctor said that this is a very rare disease, and the only thing he knew of about it was that it causes abnormalities of the arteries around the heart. He couldn't find any information on line to print off for me, and I've been looking all morning as well, with no luck.
Anyone know about this disease, or where I can find some?

It's Kawasakis disease or syndrome.
