what could this be?

My son is 4, he's had chicken pox 3 times. This morning he woke up with a rash on his face and arms with a bad cough. Any ideas?

and yes, before you try to lecture me, we have an appointment this afternoon.

  • It could possibly be Fifth Disease. Hope you get answers when you go to the doctors. I had fifth disease twice as a child and while not a big deal I had to stay home because there was a pregnant teacher at my school and it's known to cause birth defects.....I felt completely fine otherwise and for me it was a 1 week vacation.

  • Croup but I am not sure if it causes a rash.

    Get well quick.
