My 5 year old son was playing in his room about 5 pm. He comes out to the living room and I notice a rash. I thought mabey he was allergic or had gotten into something so I gave him a bath hoping it would go away. It is still there and I can't get him to his ped until Monday and I refuse to take him to the ER unless I have to because our ER doctors are idiots and don't know what they are doing. I know the picture isn't very good but its the best I can get right now
Update: When he woke up this morning, rash was still there, temp was up to 100.3, and the rash is worse.
Update 2: Took him to the ER and it was a waste of time. The idiot Dr looked at it didn't check anything and said "I'm not sure what this is just take him to his ped tommorow."
Update 3: Took him to his ped and it is fifth disease. Since he isn't fevered he isn't contagious and doesn't need any meds. I wanna say thanks to all of you who tried to help.
