Can anyone describe a slapped cheek viral rash for me?

Hmm well we think we had this a few weeks back (the kids not me)

It was more of a generalised spotty rash with very red cheeks, just below the eye. Ds2 was quite poorly with it.

lasted about a week altogether.

My mother (harbinger of doom) says it is spreading like wildfire around here atm, according to her colleagues. Take that as you will! grin

it looks like they have pressed a lace doily thing onto their skin

The 'lace doily' description is fantastic - looked just like that when ours had it, except the cheeks which were really bright red.
