How long should a Viral Skin Rash last?


Ellie developed a cold 2.5 weeks ago and a viral skin rash 2 weeks ago. We took her to the doctor on Monday 10th Jan and he confirmed that it wasn't anything to worry about. He said the virus would clear in 5-10 days.

But 2 weeks from developing the rash, her cold is long gone but the rash is still just as bad.

How long can I expect it to last, and should I be making another doctors appointment?

We do the glass test day and night, just in case, and it always disappears so not overly worried. Just expected the rash to go along with the cold really!

Harry had a viral rash a while ago which cleared up in a week.

He's got another one now, which he's had now for a week but he does still have his cold too and had a shocking temp (39.7C!) the night before the rash came up (the joys of him starting nursery!).

Like you, I'm doing the glass test night and day.

I can't answer when it will go but just wanted to let you know you're not alone!

Do you follow nursery's mealtime timings at home?


EEK! Wrong post.

Thanks How has Harry settled in at nursery?

Brilliantly!

In fact, today he started crying when I collected him and put his coat on, telling him to say good bye! They were amazed that before last Monday he's never been left with anyone other than me and DH.

That's reassuring. I've never left Ellie either and I'm dreading it!

I know it was more upsetting for me than for him. I cried on the bus to work on the first day! And I've felt awful this week as I'm off sick (Sinusitis, agony I tell thee!) but I've still sent him in but on Monday and today (he's at home with DH on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) the grins when I collected him told me he has fun.

And a good thing about nursery, totally knackers him out! He's asleep by 7pm and only wakes once (mostly because he doesn't take his bedtime bottle!).
