Re: Fifths disease

I've heard conflicting things on the face rash meaning they are no longer contagious, the body rash definitely means that. But I've seen a few kids who got the face rash very early on in their symptoms when they were still feeling quit sick. If she is feeling fine, she is probably fine.

Adults can get it, I've heard it's pretty awful as an adult. *Most* adults have had it at some point during the life, since it's a pretty common childhood illness, you only get it once, and then you are immune to it. My Dr's are still shocked every time they get my blood work back and see that I have somehow avoided it so far!
