My three year old has a rash!!! Help

It's a kind of strange pattern. Almost in the shape of a half moon. It's horizontal and seems to spread downward. It's not really red just more of a pink irritated color. It itches slightly I'm just worried. I looked up chicken pox and it's not that severe at all. Anyone have any clue or been there done that?

  • Try googling Fifth Disease. My neice was just diagnosed with this and the doctor said it is running rampid with small children right now. From what you describe it sounds like what we saw with her. Good Luck!

  • No, the ONLY way you will know for certain is to take her to the doctor.
