How many times can they get this?

How many times can a kid get Roseola? My son has had it once already, possible a 2nd time (DH and I are arguing if he has had it more than once), and now we're looking a possible 3rd time! According to our doctor, it is very rare to get it more than once. If so, why does my kid have it.............................again!

Anyone else have a kid have it more than once in a yr?

  • From Mayo Clinic:
    There is no known way to prevent the spread of roseola. Because the infection usually affects young kids but rarely adults, it is thought that a bout of roseola in childhood may provide some lasting immunity to the illness. Repeat cases of roseola may occur, but they are not common.
