I took Seth to the doctor this morning. He has developed a strange non-itchy, no-pain rash on his face and arms. After some googling I diagnosed it as Fifth Disease, but as a good mother I took him to the doc so he could confirm my diagnoses. He did, but I didn't tell him that. For some reason doctors don't care for patients or their mothers, who self-diagnose.
Also known as Slapped Cheek Disease. It is a contagious viral infection and is quite common amongst children since there are pretty much no symptoms until the rash shows up. There is a good chance the other boys have it as well. It is pretty harmless. It just has that scary looking rash and a scary name to go along with it. FIFTH DISEASE sounds pretty serious! ...but it should be gone in a few days.
