10 month old has fever and rash

My daughter got a fever 103.7 on Saturday afternoon. We cooled her off and hours later it came back. Same thing happened on Sunday and Monday. But on Monday a rash appeared on her tummy and back. Anyone else have this happen to their baby?

  • yup, there are quite a few viral rashes out there...5ths, roseola. Usually once the rash develops the virus is on the out, AND usually no longer contagious

  • My oldest son had that same thing when he was close to a yr old....it was roseola. It just had to run its course.
