Or something else? DD started with a fever Thursday night, Friday in the afternoon she still had the fever and lethargy, no other symptoms. Then i saw two teeth coming in and wrote it off as teething and gave her some motrin. Saturday still not herself, not much of a fever, just a little warm and lethargic. Sunday no fever, but a rash, only on her torso and maybe a very little on her neck/face. It does not appear to bother her. It looks just like the Rubella pictures but is not on her arms or anything. The only other thing I can think of is a milk allergy. We never gave her milk, but she occassionally gets organic yogurt and every so often some organic cheese. Yesterday DH got some regular milk (not soy and not organic) and gave DD a couple spoonfuls of cereal out of his bowl, very tiny amount, and i put it in her pancake batter which she ate very little. So is it a milk allergy or Rubella or something else? I do not think it is contact dermatitis, she was wearing all day yesterday organic cotton pjs in the same detergent we always use.

We have taken DD to the dr 3 times for mysterious rashes or skin things and each time she says "babies get rashes" and sends us on our way, because no time did it appear to bother Zoe. Two were related to bug/spider bites and the third time was hives which she thought was due to a virus. We have to pay out of pocket to see the dr so i really do not want to take Zoe for her to say "babies get rashes". lol.

The fever followed by no fever with rash present starting on torso sounds more like roseola than rubella. Rubella has fever present with the rash.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I agree with Martha! My son had a high fever for about 4 days and was lethargic and when the fever broke the rash presented (mostly on his tummy and upper thighs) and it was indeed roseola! My son got it at 15m, which is common. Sounds like your DD's age based on your siggy!

well, thinking it was Rubella, brought DH and I to do a lot of internet research and then question why to vax against it. It seems much less annoying to have than chicken pox!

I hope DD is better tomorrow, she was sooooooo cranky today that DH and I did not know what to do. I miss my DD! LOL.

Thanks ladies

I think it must just be uncomfortable and a nagging feeling or something...mine always seem a little off when they had it as well....HUGS

And yes...I agree....there are times when it's not "safe" to have Rubella (around a pregnant person, right? Or am I getting it mixed up...no I think that is right)....but it's a relatively "easy" disease...just gotta be careful around pregnant women...and only if THEY never had Rubella (or the vax supposedly)

yes, Rubella is only dangerous for women, who do not have a vax or immunity, in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Cadie got roseola when she was 10 months old, the very week she started going to the gym playroom. She was miserable from the fever.
