    Default 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?

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

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.

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