My 15 month old son started running a fever Monday evening that lasted 3 days until last night. No other symptoms. This morning I found a few very slightly raised red dots on his neck, face, diaper area, and stomach. He has a lot more now mostly in his neck and diaper area. He's just a little more crabby than usual which I attribute to being extremely spoiled the last few days. Other than that he's fine, running around playing, and acting like himself. He hasn't been to the doc but I did call on Tuesday to ask about the fever. The nurse said there's a lot of stuff going around and if he wasn't better in the next few days to call back and they would check for an ear infection. It's not an ear infection.. and they're closed. Does this warrant a trip to the ER or urgent care clinic? I think not, but just wanted some advice. It does sound like roseola doesn't it?
