My 4 year old has a fever, cough, watery eyes, and red rash

My 4 year old has a fever, cough, watery eyes, and red rash on his face. Fever went down with Ibuprofen. No change in rash from Benadryl. I thought it might be fifth disease but a friend says it could be measles?! He's been vaccinated. How can I tell the difference?

My daughter who is 3 has the start of a sty in her eye.

My daughter who is 3 has the start of a sty in her eye. Could this have been caused by going to her pediatrician yesterday and labcorp and touching things etc or is incubation period longer? I did sanitize her hands as best as I could but of course she touched everything and now l feelguilty/paranoid how germs everything was:(Typically would a sty show up within a day if it was created by her touching things etc and rubbing eyes?

My son is 10 years old. Once or twice a week we give him

My son is 10 years old. Once or twice a week we give him liquid melatonin (as advised by his Dr) to help him sleep when he needs to get up early. But most of the time it backfires. He ends up falling asleep fine, but it's a very disturbed sleep (moving a lot), and he wakes up way too early. Like, last night I gave it to him (half of a dropper full) and he fell asleep at midnight and then was awake at 5am and was up all day afterwards.So my question is - what else can I give him that would work better for a more restful, longer (8 hrs at least) sleep?p.s. He is almost 80 pounds. So if you say Benedryl for instance, how much? Also is there anything other than just Benedryl? Thank you!

My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he

Hi,My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he went through an experimental procedure of a live liver transplant where he now has half my liver (his father). The operation proved successful as the toxic metabolites in his blood went drastically down.He is now on immunosuppressant medication and lately he has been behaving like his eyes are hurting him. he keeps closing them and crying and sometimes the eyelids sowl a little bit (specially the left one).We took him to an eye doctor who said there is nothing wrong with him, we took him to a neurologist who checked his EEG during that time and said theres nothing wrong with him too.He is in so much pain and sometimes cannot open his eyes for 15 minutes straight. One doctor said it might be photophobia as its one of the side effects of the drug. But he is in so much pain even when its completely dark. Could it still be photophobia?Please help us with as much details as possibleThank you

My 8 year old son has had a cough last week that gets worse

My 8 year old son has had a cough for the last week that gets worse at night. It seems like he is congested and can't clear his throat so he cough a lot. He has for the past 2 nights coughed up clear mucus. During the day he does cough but not so much. His temperature is 97.8. I asked him what hurts he says he has pains on his neck when he coughs , i think that is because of how hard he coughs. Other than that he has no pain. He also sweats when he is coughing. My question how can i know if it's something more than just a cold. What can i give him to help clear his air ways. I gave him over the counter medicine for cold and cough but does not seem to help much. Right now he just fell asleep his mouth is closed and is breathing thru his nose.
