  • Sounds like Roseola. FIFTHS disease looks like they have been slapped on the cheeks and they get a lacey rash on their arms. Your fine. No dr. visit required.

  • To the PP - Roseola and SIXTHS disease are the same thing. The OP wasn't talking about FIFTHS disease.
    To the OP - everything I've read says that "There is no evidence that exposure to Roseola in pregnancy has any negative effect on either the mother or fetus".
