My son came out with a sudden temperature on Saturday January 17. The temperature subsided today, and now he has a slightly raised rash on his body. He has had roseola before, so I'm thinking this might be roseola too.

If you want a better answer, you will need to give us a better description. ...Read more

Red, raised, rash on arms and legs, allergic raction from Depo-Provera provera shot?

Reaction to Depo: Can happen, usually due to the carrier the progestin is in, but could also be the progestin itself. Unfortunately, once you get the shot, you are along for the ride.
