Just in Case you ever wondered what Fifth Disease looks like
Link Up Your WW Post Below!
Oh dear! I hope he’s feeling better soon.
And, thanks for the great image of the rash. This could come in handy 🙁
OMG! Please tell me it looks worse then it actually is?!?! Poor guy!
it really does look worse than it is lol
Oh No your poor little guy… hope he gets better soon!
oh poor little dude, is it itchy?
it’s a little itchy, especially when the rash is very red and swollen like on the elbows.
Poor little guy – hope he feels better soon!
WOW! WHAT IS IT AND HOW DO YOU GET IT? POOR THING!
it’s very similar to chicken pox
Poor guy! I remember when I had it – it was awful. My son’s friend had a very mild case though and it barely bothered him!
Yikes! Poor baby! I’m sure that isn’t fun at all. Hope he gets some relief!
Awww! Poor little! 🙁
Aww, poor thing. Hope he feels better ASAP
Oh we’ve had that in our house 🙁 Sucky
Poor little guy, that really doesn’t look fun! 🙁
Awww! Poor lil guy! I’ve heard of Fifth’s, but had never really seen what it looked like or what it does to the body. Is this something that goes away? Does it reoccur? Hope your sweet boy feels some relief 🙂 xoxo
it’s like chicken pox in the sense that once you get it you won’t get it again, which is why you rarely see adults with it. but it does go away and come back a few times before it’s gone for good. my middle guy has had it for three weeks in different stages. Cold and activity seems to flare it up again.
Oh wow, poor little guy, hope he feels better soon.
Oh No! Poor kid. Is it contagious? Somehow we escaped that one. Knocking on wood now because I said that. Hope he is better soon!
yup, definitely contagious!
aww no hope he feels better soon.
Ahhh poor guy! I never saw it go that bad… Hope its not bothering him too bad.
this is my youngest who got it from head to toe all at once and then it was gone. my middle guy has had it in stages for weeks. One day on his arms, the next on his legs etc. it keeps moving around
Oh no! Poor child… so sorry you are dealing with this.
Oh my!! Poor kid 🙁 I’ve heard of it but haven’t really seen what it looks like. Is it itchy or sore…or can he feel it at all?
yup, it’s itchy, only where the spots are red and inflamed
Hoping it passes quickly. Does he have a fever with it too? I’ve heard that’s quite common with Fifth.
yes, lots of fevers around here!
Oh no!! We had a warning for Fifth’s Disease go through the school lately, but so far the boys have avoided it. Fingers crossed your boys are better soon!
Hope everyone is felling better, and that the boys didn’t spread it to each other!
lol they totally did, all three have had it now!
I know a few people who have had this..not fun!!
