My 15 month old is just getting over roseola, no more temp or rash. However, he is extremely clingy, cranky, and is taking longer naps than usual.?

In brief: Takes a while

Getting completely over a virus can take a while.
Making sure you are back to your usual pre-illness schedule can help. However, if he develops fever again or symptoms last longer than a week, see your doctor again.

In brief: Fatigue can linger

After a viral infection, especially a more aggressive one, fatigue can last a few weeks past the actual infection.
If the baby is still feeling under the weather in a week or so bring him/ her back for a recheck. If the fever or other symptoms return, bring him back sooner.
