Looking for up-to-date health advice from experts and parents?
Mumsnetters aren't necessarily qualified to help if your child is unwell. If you have any serious medical concerns, we would urge you to consult your GP.
Noticed it before I put him to bed last night, but didn't think much of it, but it's still there and behind his ears too.It is slightly raised and red, and ds is slightly warm to the touch but not really a temp. Have given piriton.My problem is, that his school have recently been on my back about his poor attendance last school year and I really don't want to keep him off if it is nothing, but how can I tell i'm not a doctor.
Too late, I took him, although the rash had calmed down alot after I gave him the piriton so am thinking maybe a reaction to something, not sure what though.He had a bath last night and hair washed etc but I didn't use anything different.Obviously if school are concerned then they can ring me and I will fetch him.
That's fine, i'll just blame the head teachers attitude to attendance Ds is generally a very rashy/spotty type of child for some reason. Mind you my younger brother was the same, god knows why.
Lol, I can hope
Could be slapped cheek, in which case by the time the rash develops they are no longer infectious.Not scarlet fever or it'd be all over him by now.So nothing to keep him off school for anyway.
