My 8 year old ds was sent home from school on Tuesday due to a rash on his arms, back, stomach (that was it at that time) it IS itchy. To describe the rash it is small red bumps they are pretty much equal in size, I took him to the doctor's on Tuesday and they said Roseola, It is now almost Friday the rash has spread all the way from his face to his feet it is itchy an his groin is the worst area his skin is peeling above and below his genitals, his foreskin is swollen and it is very red (awwww, my poor baby), he even has strawberry tongue, but no fever and even the strep test was negative, it has a sandpaper feel to it as well. any help would be apprecited, I called the doctor again yesterday they told me to call back if it got worse, well I did that and you blew me off. My ds has had scarlet fever before and this looks exactly like it to give you an example, but the doctor said not way the strep test was - - - - -.

Thank you,

concerned mom
