ROSEOLA or ROSE-RASH.–The disease consists of an eruption of rose-red spots very like those of measles. It is distinguished from the latter by the absence of symptoms of cold in the head, catarrh, and the slight amount of fever. It is more common in warm weather, and frequently depends on some derangement of the stomach and bowels. The rash fades in a few days. The disease is not dangerous nor contagious.
General Treatment.–Light diet and protection from chills is all that is necessary.
Medicines.–(Every two hours.)
–Restlessness, dry skin.
–Flushed face, redness and soreness of the throat.
