Sorry for being ignorant, but what is it?

One of mine had it - fierce fever but not ill at all!

the thing is ds has had the rash for three days and its spreading more by the day its all over his face and in his hair he gets a high temp about twice a day since he had the rash and hes been sick twice do you think he needs to be seen again or let it run its course

That doesn't sound like roseola, stuffing - do get him seen again, in fact I'd ring NHS Direct & see what they say.

Did a GP say it was roseola?
