  • Do they itch? Google roseola. Then call your doctor and ask them.

  • Could be measles or a number of ailments, even if he has had the vaccinations it doesn't mean he is not going to get it, it just mean if he does, it will be a light version of the disease....

    This is NOT a substitute for a REAL Dr., so please call your child's Dr. for an expert opinion & diagnosis.

  • It could be several things, but the best thing (read ONLY THING) to do is to call your pediatrician's office and ask to have your DS seen. It could be allergies, a virus, or any number of things.
