Re: Fifths disease

Once a fifths rash appears the person is no longer contagious. It looks like fifths and with the symptoms prior I would bet that is what it is. The lacy body rash is not common in kids over 10 so she may be spared that. Joint pain is common though once the rash appears in kids her age.
Incubation is like 16 days, but can be 4-28.

I would give Motrin/tylenol and keep an eye.
