My son's teacher approached me when I picked him up from school today. She said he might have fifth disease. I asked what that was, its a virus that causes a low grade fever, diarrhea, and red cheeks. She said it runs a 3 day course and then its gone. She didnt seem too concerned, but since Im pregnant, I should call my Dr. I called ds's Dr and they didnt have any openings, so they said to take him to the care clinic. Is it important that he goes? I don't have a car til 5 and I dont know if they're open after that. My Dr said they'll just run a test on me tomorrow when I go in for my appt that was already scheduled. Ds seems fine, just really pink, blotchy cheeks.
