Roseola (also known as sixth disease, exanthem subitum, and roseola infantum) is a viral illness in young kids, most commonly affecting those between 6 months and 2 years old. It is usually marked by several days of high fever, followed by a distinctive rash just as the fever breaks.
Signs and Symptoms
A child with roseola typically develops a mild upper respiratory illness, followed by a high fever (often over 103°F or 39.5°C) for up to a week. During this time, the child may appear fussy or irritable and may have a decreased appetite and swollen lymph nodes (glands) in the neck.
The high fever often ends abruptly, and at about the same time a pinkish-red flat or raised rash appears on the trunk and spreads over the body. The rash’s spots blanch (turn white) when you touch them, and individual spots may have a lighter “halo” around them. The rash usually spreads to the neck, face, arms, and legs.
yes it is contagious

It been awhile since ive been on we have had a very very crazy and sad past few weeks we were in the hospital because baby girls white blood count was down to 0 then they also told us she had Roseola. witch we don’t know how because she is never around nobody. we got released a week later because they moved up to 380 . when we got her blood done a week later it was back down very low then we went back to the hospital and her test results came back that she has a autoimmune disorder. so we have to go see a hematologist and plus get blood done every Friday . it just so tragic because this came out of no were and we don’t no were

So wish me luck that i can figure something out!!
