What are some of the symptoms of fifth disease in kids?

Fifth disease … …is a viral illness (parvovirus b19) aka erythema infectiosum or "slapped cheek" disease. Red cheeks, as if slapped, is one of first symptoms; some may have fever; lacy rash develops on arms & legs; some may have joint pains. Children usually don't act "sick". Use tylenol/ children's Motrin (ibuprofen) for fever/aches. Otherwise, no tx required. Infxn resolves on its own. Don't expose pregnant d/t fetal risk.
