My 20 month old son is just now ending a bout of roseola. He is on his third day of the rash and I have noticed for the last 3 days he has been extraordinarily fussy. He is so clingy which is very unlike him. Is this a normal response to the illness? I am just wondering what kind of pain he could be in Tylenol does not help his fussiness. Very decreased appetite still as well (very unlike him). I am just concerned because I would think we should be on the upswing from this illness and not as fussy, but it seems to be getting worse instead of better.
Thank you for your help,

Roseola may last 3-7 days. If your child is improving as far as other symptoms, don't be over concerned at this point. You may want to notify your child's physician so if an evaluation is warranted it can be scheduled. Best wishes.
