2 Bumps

My daughter is almost 2 and has an elevated temp, not quite a fever (99.1-99.9) for the past few days, along with a runny nose, cold like symptoms and has developed a rash on her belly...

Sounds viral? Right?

It's a bumpy red rash all over her belly.

She is super cranky but still plays and is eating and drinking.

  • Signs and Symptoms

    Fifth disease begins with a low-grade fever, headache, and mild cold-like symptoms (a stuffy or runny nose). These symptoms pass, and the illness seems to be gone until a rash appears a few days later.

    The bright red rash usually begins on the face. Several days later, the rash spreads and red blotches (usually lighter in color) extend down to the trunk, arms, and legs. The rash usually spares the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. As the centers of the blotches begin to clear, the rash takes on a lacy net-like appearance. Kids younger than 10 years old are most likely to get the rash.

    This is what I am thinking.

  • Sounds to me like she needs to be seen by her Dr if the rash doesnt clear up
