It looks like Evan had roseola... He had a fever for 3-4 days. Then Friday, it ended.. Today, we noticed a rash on his torso/back.. Its not bothering him at all, but seems odd the timing with the fever, etc. I called the pedi office and talked to the dr... he is the one who saw him on thursday and I told him the deal and he said it was roseola... So glad that was it...no strep, flu, (they tested for both on thursday) etc...
Evan slept a ton the past few days, barely ate, etc... Symptoms I read online other then the fever are swollen glands and a runny nose... both of which he had.. He is relatively back to normal today with a runny nose, eating again for the most part... The rash should go away in a couple days...
Dr. said he's not contagious any more.. So, he's finally going back to daycare tomorrow...

Glad he's better. Alyssa had roseola while we were in Hawaii this past summer; not fun to have while on vacation! She looked like she had a horrible heat rash! And yes, they're really most contagious during the fever stage, not the rash stage, so hopefully he was fine at daycare.
