Customer Question
Hi goodnight Doctor's Assistant:...

Hi goodnight

Doctor's Assistant: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.

Yes I have a question

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

My son got a rash on his cheeks about 2 days now. Tiny red bumps

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the bumps better or worse?

And now he has fever that's over 104 F

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing in particular. But he usually has a runny nose (which his doc said might be from dust)

Both high grade fever and facial erythema go with viral fever. You need to g8ve tylenol / acetaminophen for fever alongwith tepid sponging if iits as high as 104. No need for any antibiotics ,as it will settle on its own in a couple of days.

You may give benadryl for runny nose ,will help your kid feel better.

I hope it was helpful.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

Its more like slapped cheek appearance of Parvo virus . It will settle down spontaneously, just take care of the fever.

Please let me know if it was helpful.

Available to answer any further queries.

Please reward a 5 stars rating if you are satisfied.

Wishing you a healthy life.

Kind regards.

Dr Saleem.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
