    Not sure but I think slapped face is a temporary sickness hun, not an on going thing.. .can you take a picture and ask your doctor? Is it when he' been outside in the cold?

    If it's coming and going every now and then it won't be parvovirus. The "slapped cheek" effect would just happen the once, then the infection would resolve.
