Your Doctor is a knob

What does the doctor care whether or not you send her to school? What did they say exactly?

Any viral illness is contagious, whether with a rash or without, many viruses are most contagious before the rash comes out.

Only you can decide whether your child is fit for school.
Sorry that your GP did not communicate well with you and took his frustrations out on you.
