13 month, rash started same time as fever, fever lasted 2 days, rash 6 days, still here isn't going away. How long does roseola last?

7-10 days: This is a very normal course for roseola. While the fever is usually only 2-3 days, the rash typically persists for 7-10 days. You are on day 6 - give it through the weekend yet. Another one of those childhood illnesses here and about to be gone! ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

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?

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

Is it normal that roseola rash worsen as days go by? What can i do for my kid? Pls help no fever she is itching and we gave antihistamine

Cool bath may help.: Roseola rash is generally not itchy and lasts about 3 days. Itchy rash sounds more an like allergic reaction or urticaria that can come as a result of infection, so if rash doesn't clear in 3 days, please get evaluation. Continue antihistamine. Sometimes topical lotions that leave the skin feeling cool also is effective. ...Read more

Possible: Sometimes roseola rash can look like macular patches and spots and can be mistaken for allergies. High fever is common but not always seen. If it disappears in 2-3 days with no anti-histaminic medications, it is likely to be roseola. https://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=chr-greentree_ie&ei=utf-8&ilc=12&type=523482&p=roseola Above is a link of such a rash. ...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?

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?

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

My granddaughter (16 mo) diagnosed roseola or fifths.  I have an itchy rash on arms and neck and had fever blister. Any connection?

No connection: Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is the most frequent cause of roseola.?Roseola classically begins with three to five days of fever that may exceed 40ºC (104ºF); as the fever abates, a blanching macular or maculopapular rash develops, starting on the neck and trunk and spreads to the face and extremities. It is self limited and benign. I do not believe your symptoms are caused by Roseola! ...Read more
