Liam Update

As what I have said on my last post about my son Liam, We have no choice but to bring him at the emergency room. He still has fever and cough and now we just found out that there were rashes all over his body. I panicked and told hubby to bring our son in the hospital. I'm afraid of dengue and other related illnesses.

So, We bought Liam at the hospital... he was checked and later found out that my son has ROSEOLA. Nothing serious according to the doctor. They gave us Paracetamol for the fever and Virlix for the roseola.

I have less knowledge with roseola.... roseola is also called "TIGDAS HANGIN" here in our country.... I searched the net and saw this article about ROSEOLA....

Roseola (also known as sixth disease, exanthem subitum, and roseola infantum) is a viral illness in young children, most commonly affecting those between the ages of 6 months and 2 years. It is typically marked by several days of high fever, followed by a distinctive rash just as the fever breaks.

Two common and closely related viruses can cause roseola: human herpesvirus (HHV) type 6 and possibly type 7. These two viruses belong to the same family as the better-known herpes simplex viruses (HSV), but HHV-6 and HHV-7 do not cause the cold sores and genital herpes infections that HSV can cause.
