  • I had it when I was a teen-ager. I don't remember much of it, I had a high fever and an itchy rash. My dd, and my youngest sister had it at the same time. My dad brought my sister to me to take care of because my dd already had it. I know, sounds weird, but I was the oldest child and my youngest sister was almost like my child. They were sick for about a week, they had fevers, but not too high and an itchy rash all over. I remember they told us to keep their cups, plates, bowls, and utensils seperate, even after washing. Myself, or my dd, or sister had any complications from it later.

  • I had it when I was 13. Actually, I had Scarlet Fever & Mono at the same time. I missed 3 weeks of school. It sucked!
