My two year old son developed a rash and fever over two days ago. They are calling it Roseola, but the rash appeared at the same time as the fever, not after the fever broke. The rash is from head to toe and is raised in some areas, while flat in others. His eyes are bloodshot and his fever persists at 100-103 degrees (around 100 degrees after Advil). He is also experiencing episodes of emesis periodically along with diarrhea. He is definitely more tired than usual, but will eat popsicles and drink fluids. Even though it is “classic” for the rash to appear after the fever has gone away, can they be concurrent? I am concerned about Kawasaki's Disease. Thanks for any information you can provide me! Have a great evening.
