  • One had it for almost 2 weeks. The shortest duration was 1 week. None of them had it on just their cheeks though- arms, stomachs, even back and legs for the worst one.

  • I had it when I was little. I think my rash lasted about a week.

  • I am trying to figure out if he has it or just a rash from the sun block we used yesterday. Actually they say most kids get it in school & it goes away on it's own. Very benign unless a pregnant Woman gets it.
