It was one of you...

Who had fifth disease, right? My son has it now, the poor guy. If it had not been recently posted about on here, we might have scheduled him an appointment with an allergist. At first thought he had an allergic reaction to something.

  • Oh Great! Thanks! I thought I had an allergic reaction myself & I thought my Son may have got a rash from the sunscreen I was using. I got really bad pain a day later so I went in for blood work. Most adults have already been exposed to it when they were young & once you get it you'll never get it again. Hope he feels better soon. My Son's cheeks were red for about a week. My Dr. said once the rash appears then you most likely are not contagious anymore. Glad to help! :)

  • Me & my Son had it just recently! Did you have a question? We got it at the same time. I had it very bad, he had no symptoms other than very red cheeks. I still am dealing with the pain from it.
