Roseola

What is Roseola?

Roseola is a viral illness. It usually affects children between the ages of 6 months and 2 years. Roseola is rare in children younger than 4 months or older than 4 years. In rare cases, repeat cases of roseola may occur.

Roseola is also called sixth disease, exanthem subitum, and roseola infantum.

Symptoms of Roseola

There are many symptoms of roseola. The most common symptoms are:

  • high fever
    • The fever is often over 103 degrees Fahrenheit, or 39.5 degrees Celsius.
    • The fever lasts from 3 to 7 days, followed by a rash lasting from hours to a few days.
  • decreased appetite
  • swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • pinkish-red flat or raised rash
    • The rash usually appears on the neck, face, arms, and legs.
    • The rash can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days

What causes Roseola?

Roseola is caused by human herpes virus (HHV) type 6 and type 7.

Is Roseola Contagious?
