Re: When to worry about a fever?

Are his cheeks still red (fifth disease maybe)? Or has he had strep recently (which can cause scarlet fever)?
He's never had strep... or 5th that I know of. The rash was on his butt & lower back. It's pretty much gone now, just a tad still there. His cheeks aren't as red now that he took a cool bath.

He's watching Blues Clues now & eating cereal. His eating is fine so that's good.
