Went to the doctor's today because of his abnormally high fever. Turns out he's fighting a virus.. slap cheek disease ?. His cheeks and ears gets extremely red and hot. :
I've heard of that [Fifths Disease]. Glad you figured out what it was. FYI, you'll want to keep LO away from pregnant women, if he's still contagious [hopefully the pedi told you that]. Hope your LO is all better soon!
Ah yes, the fifth disease.... Typically not a big deal for kids and fever is very common as well as redness to very noticeable rash on the face and sometimes chest. But yes, definitely keep your LO away from pregnant women.
I was exposed to it when I was about 8 months pregnant. Had to do do all kinds of tests. Luckily all was good but there was talk of early induction even if I would have gotten it... It is very dangerous for women in first trimester.
Hope your LO feels better!
