  • It's not a communicable disease, otherwise they would immunize for that too just like everything else. It comes from a fever. Unfortunately it looks bad, but there are no long term effects from it.

  • Yes, it is a communicable disease, It's measles. I do believe you can get it more than one time. Seeing your daughter has had it 3 times, I would ask the doctor about it, maybe it's not roseola but an allergic reaction to something.

  • I talked to a doctor...Roseola is a mild form of measles and it is contagious. If a child gets roseola then they are more likely to get regular measles.
