Yes, we suspected roseola first but we consulted a doctor anyway to verify that it wasn"t scarlet fever because of the sandpaper like rash on her legs. Ears and throat were clear which was good. Though he didn"t think it was roseola either. Guess we will tell him the good news tomorrow.

My daughter had a fever 103.0 and diarrhea on a Sunday afternoon, the very next day the fever went down and the diarrhea stopped but then the rash appeared. I took her to the doctor and he said she was fine and that the rash was nothing to worry about and to keep her out of daycare for a day. The following day she went back to daycare, and 3 more kids were infected with the rash all over their face.
