Hi all mommies & daddies here!!!!

anyone heard of this "Viral Exantham"? :?: :? :scratchhead:
this is a kind of Virus..
And futher info doctors' sounded unknows as well.
However, my pri2 boy got this virus. With all small red spot on the whole body with itch as well:( No antiobic to treatment. Accept oral medication for Pirtion for itch and Parmol for pain & fever. That's all.
Oh anyone here came across this virus?

Sometimes, really furious which we have doubts and doctor may gives us something more positive answer etc. Instead of replied "UNKNOWS" or why parents sounded so panic!!! :mad:

This is NOT a kind a virus.

The term "Viral Exantham" merely means "rash caused by a virus". It is not specific to any particular virus.

Viral rash in layman terms. It is usually preceded by a high fever. No antibiotics coz it is not a bacterial infection, just piriton and paracetamol or Nurofen if fever is high. Got to take its course.

Can be contagious among kids that age or younger. Just make sure to wash your hands after handling him.
