Yikes! My wee one had Roseola but it doesn't sound like it presented the same way your little one's is. I would say take her somewhere due to the runs and not eating. Little ones can get dehydraded very easily, especially with loose bowels. How is her behavior? Does she just seem ill? My daughter was very lethargic, had a very high fever, didn't eat but drank water very well. You could just tell she was very sick. After the fever broke, the rash came on in force. By the time the rash came on the pediatrician said she was no longer contagious or really ill at that point, and her behavior was back to her normal happy self. The rash covered her entire body, and looked hilarious, but her appetite was normal and no runs.
I would take her in if I were you.

Your doctor wasn't even close with the Roseola diagnosis. Kinda scary!
Glad you got it figured out! :)
