Fifth Disease

Fifth disease is a mild rash infection caused by parvovirus B19. This disease is also known as erythema infectiosum. It is more common in children than adults.  A person usually gets sick with fifth disease within four to 14 days after getting infected with parvovirus B19. The major symptoms of fifth disease are usually mild and may include fever, running nose, and headache. This disease is contagious because the rash is due to an immune system reaction that happens after the infection has passed. Anyone with fifth disease is most contagious before the rash appears. Children usually don't spread the infection once they have the rash. This disease is caused by a virus, so it can't be treated with antibiotics. In most cases, it is a mild illness that clears up on its own and no medicine is needed.
