Since we last told you about the suspicious rash that was spreading throughout the school, the number of cases has tripled.

On Wednesday nearly 30 students had come down with an itchy red rash. School officials report there are at least 91 cases now, but the number of new cases has decreased. Health experts say it's unlikely that they'll pin point the cause of the rash, but they say there's no need to be alarmed.

These sorts of rashes are common in schools across the U.S. No need to keep the kids out of school either, a dab of ointment should do the trick.
