Was anyone's initial rash very itchy?

I am a nurse practitioner, and my son is 21 months. He was not initially diagnosed when we saw the pediatrician about two weeks ago, and we are now past the 10 day window. But now his hands and feet are peeling now, and I am scared that in hindsight it may have been KD. His rash was very itchy though, and none of the research that I have done indicates that the rash would itch. ?? All of the other symptoms fit, except that the rash was very itchy.

hi

I've never heard of the KD rash being itchy...but, an eval by a pediatric cardiologist might
be worthwhile :)

best,
Nancy

I realize this post was from July, but my son was diagnosed with KD in mid August, and his rash was super itchy for him. He couldn't stop itching it.
