2-year-old girl believed to have died from tick bite

Family and friends of a 2-year-old girl who died are hoping to raise awareness for tick born diseases.

It was only when Kenley was given another antibiotic and the pink rashes turned dark purple-red that doctors at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis suspected Kenley might have Rocky Mountain spotted fever, CNN reported.

While Kenley didn't survive her battle with RMSF, her memory lives on. She returned and was finally admitted to the hospital when the fever didn't go away.

First, Kenley tested positive for strep throat. But around day four or five, her fever hadn't dropped, and she was going limp.

The trademark rash appears days later, changing from small, pink spots to large, red or purple ones.

Another image shows Kayla laying next to her daughter wearing a face mask and overalls to protect her from the infection.

The firm believes the above Instagram comment may have been executed as a test because "there were only 17 hits recorded". Visitors to the website were asked to install the malicious Firefox extension , which was in fact a JavaScript backdoor.

The Indiana State Health Department said it received 40 reported cases of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in 2016 and 30 reported cases in 2015. "There's a lot of inflammation and it can swell organs like the brain and cause inflammation in the blood vessels", John said.

While the hospital hasn't confirmed the diagnosis yet, testing will establish the potential cause in two weeks. According to the Indiana State Department of Health, there were 40 cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever there past year. The purply rash that soon covered her entire body also provided an important clue. According to the CDC, more than 20% of untreated cases lead to death.

Health experts and professionals have warned that a warm winter means fewer ticks dying off during the season.

Communicable disease coordinator Vanessa Presley suggested that you check your kids for ticks every time you come inside.

She said Kenley's mother doesn't want the tragedy to happen to anyone else.

Kirby went on to say that Kenley's parents are determined to raise awareness of how risky rick bites can be. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community. A celebration of life for Kenley is taking place Saturday. Doctors recommend that parents closely check their children after they've been outside. "And they'll know, and they'll understand".
