Rosey What? A Fever Then A Rash

Oh the things no one prepares you for when it comes to Motherhood... Lil Man developed a fever last Thursday. I knew he didn't seem his usual self, and he was super cranky. I contributed it to cutting his two year molars. I could see part of a tooth coming in. He had a fever for a couple of days (maybe 2.5 to 3). And then on Monday, he was even crankier, but he didn't have a fever. He did however have a rash that was developing. I called the pediatrician's office to see if I needed to bring him in. I was told unless his rash got worse, or he developed another fever, that it was probably just from his fever the few days before.

As the day went on, he got crankier and the rash got angrier. By last night, it was decided that I was calling today to get him checked out. The rash covered his neck, chest, back, head, buttocks, and face.

Diagnosis? Roseola. Thankfully since we've reached the rash stage, he isn't contagious anymore. And supposedly after a couple days or so, he should be completely over it. I sure hope so! 


  1. It's more like a German measles. It has the same symptoms. I think this is because of the season.

    1. Thankfully his rash went away in a couple of days.
