Fifth disease (xp)

So it looks like we have been hit with fifth disease. DD1 woke yesterday with a red rash on her cheeks, one side worse then the other. It was a little itchy but she was doing well with not touching it. And then when tucking her in I notice it had spread to her chest. And then this morning notice more on her leg. After researching I'm positive it's fifth. We have a doctors appt so we'll know better then. I'm worried about the babies. Neither have a rash any where yet and I was told that once the rash appears they are no longer infectious so I'm hoping it's passed the babes (fingers crossed).

Anyone else dealt/dealing with fifth disease? Sad

So how did everyone fare with 5ths? We've never had that one, knock on wood. Smile

Some how both babes avoided it :yahoo:. And luckly Syd got over the rash quickly (it can stay for 1-2 weeks, hers cleared in 5 days Yahoo )
