Hi kimberely!
Thanks for choosing disease is an acute disease of infants and young children in which a high fever and skin rash occur. Roseola is contagious and spreads through tiny drops of fluid from the nose and throat of infected people. It is contagious from about two days before the fever starts until 1 or 2 days after the fever is gone, even if the rash continues.
