Contagious while fever is present until rash appears..I'm sure the 5 mo will get it. Mom, probably not. I wouldn't be around him until it is all clear. Ds had it last summer , he also has had roseola twice now. Dh did get the roseola the 2 nd time, both had fevers and bad rash. With HFM ds had high fever, sore throat w white spots, and a few spots/blisters on hands and soles of feet.
