So after 4 days of fever my 7 month old daughter has roseola. What should I do? How long does this last?

I have a 2 month old baby and my friend's daughter had a fever and now a rash. Dr said roseola and she's no longer contagious. Can she come visit?
Yes, and wash hands!: If your friend's daughter is no longer contagious there is no reason for her not to visit. Avoid having people that are obviously sick around the baby; however, you can't live in a bubble. All contact carries some risk of transmission of a communicable illness (often before the person knows they are getting sick) - wash hands well and relax a bit. Has your baby had their 2 month vaccinations? ...Read more

However, if there are any concerns about the diagnosis or what else to do, please see your child's pediatrician. ...Read more
Virus: Roseola is a viral infection that causes a rash and fever. It is common in infants and children. The most common virus is human herpesvirus 6, but other viruses can cause the same clinical picture. Not the same herpes virus that causes painful genital blisters.

Dx by Hx & exam: I don't recall ever needing or doing a "test" for roseola. It is a minor illness that is common & distinctive in its features. Most will label the process when enough features present, which often takes a few days. In a research setting, blood tests obtained at the time of first fever & 2-4 weeks later will document rise in antibody production to the virus. ...Read more
