Infant had fever about 2 days up to 102.7 finally broke on day 2 but now has rash on head chest back and cries almost constantly?

Common patters: A lot of infant viral infections will have fever for a few days and end in a generalized rash. Some have names based on location and type of rash, but they are expected and rather benign.I'd consider the crying evidence it is not finished.As long as the kid takes fluids well and plays occasionally you can monitor at home.If not drinking the kid should be seen. ...Read more

Needs eval: Reddish lump in an infant could be a vascular swelling or abormality sometimes. It can also be bruising due to trauma. If is not not painful (diffult to tell in an infant ) and no fever is present, swelling is usually not an infection. Make sure her pediatrician evaluates her swelling. ...Read more

See a doctor!: There are many different potential causes of this.

When a baby has roseola, is it normal to fever coming back when the body is still covered with rash? Or should it be high only before rash appears?

Not usually: The sequela of roseola is that the fever resolves and then the rash appears. If the fever is persisting, it could be something else besides roseola. In any case if the fever still recurs, then it's time to follow up with the doctor again. Good health. ...Read more

Can my child attend school with a post viral rash?  Fever is gone, no other symptoms.

Viral Exanthum : The level of contagion drops significantly once a child has been fever free without medications for 24 hours. Viral rashes often take much longer to resolve but should not prohibit school or daycare attendance. An exception would be chickenpox, which should be considered contagious until all lesions are scanned and dry. ...Read more

Child has fifths disease. After rash on cheeks, went away and rash on lower body. Suddenly onset of fever. Something different or normal?

Normal: The fever, while usually with the rash in Fifth's disease, can occur at any point in the illness. SO your child's development of the fever now is certainly within the normal course of the illness. Have them stay away from pregnant people if at all possible until completely back to normal health. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my child had a high fever for 3 days then after fever left she got a rash all over what could it be?

Roseola: This sounds like a classic description of roseola. It is a viral childhood disease that usually peaks in incidence in the summer months, but can happen any time of year. Pretty much it's as you describe. A few days of fever, then fever breaks and rash appears. Rash resolves within a week. Once rash appears, child no longer contagious. Usually kids get it before age 3. ...Read more

If a child has strep & gets scarlet fever, will the rash show up immediately when the symptoms start or can it take a few days for the rash to start?

If a child has strep & gets scarlet fever, will the rash show up immediately when the symptoms start or can it take a few days for the rash to start?

Usually soon: The rash producing chemical that is generated by the strep is created after the start of the infection when it has reproduced in enough numbers to make the rash toxin.Studies suggest it will be evident by 12 hours after the appearance of fever in the illness.Not all strep will produce the rash, only those with the extra dna to make the extra toxin. ...Read more

8 month 3 weeks old baby, pink rash appeared on front torso this morning, skin feels rough, looks like roseola rash, NO fever. What could it be?

Virus: Viruses (especially the summer time viruses) can cause rashes with or without fevers. Strep can cause a rash that is rough, usually on the stomach (uncommon under age 2). Heat rash can also cause a bumpy pink rash on the abdomen. I would have the baby seen to be sure nothing serious is going on. ...Read more

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

Advice for a cranky baby that's teething?  He has never been cranky. No fever. He is 6 months old and drools to the point where a bit of mouth rash

Teething. : Teething pain can make babies cranky, but it shouldn't be as bad as it sounds. 6 months usually means first teeth; I'm guessing. Drooling can also be a sign of sore throat, even without fever. If pain medicine isn't working; see your doctor. If the rash is on the skin around the mouth; try some ointment, to try to keep it waterproofed. If is on the lips or inside the mouth; it's not from teething. ...Read more
