My 6 year old present with an itchy rash and fever. Yesterday complained about a sore throat.?

Viral infection: This sounds like a common viral infection. The sore throat was the key - since that's where the infection most likely took hold. I would show this to a doctor ASAP-so they can try to figure out 'what' is causing the infection and therefore direct treatment. Hopefully your child is updated on all their shots, as unfortunately there's a resurgence in diseases that should have gone away (ie. measles) ...Read more

I think my 9-month-old has fifth disease. Rash and fever lasted only one day. Should I take her to the doctor if no symptoms are present?

I think my 9-month-old has fifth disease. Rash and fever lasted only one day. Should I take her to the doctor if no symptoms are present?

What's Ur gut tell U: There are a variety of rash producing viruses that have little importance to the real scheme of things & most can be managed at home. If the kid is playful for most of his/her day, feeding & wetting diapers as usual, I see little need for an office visit. I truly believe mom's are pre-wired with a sense of their own child's needs & can tell if they need to come in. Do what you're comfortable with. ...Read more

Took my 14 month old to doc for fever and rash they did CBC differential which at the time showed basically that she may have a cold WBC was good. She's gotten wors and rubs her head now not sure if its just a common headache or a sign of something else sh

Likely benign illnes: Most 24mo with fever & a rash will have one of many viral illnesses that occur at that age & most have many systems affected by the illness as it spreads through the system. Headache is common in febrile kids old enough to articulate the feeling. A normal CBC is good news & a good basic screen for bad germs. The process should improve gradually or seek a recheck if the kid seems to fade again. ...Read more
