welcome to HCM

ther are chances of your kid gettin a second time of the erythema infectiosum (fifth disease). Outbreaks tend to happen in the late winter and early spring, but there can be sporadic cases of the disease throughout the year.

kindly avoid close contacts with kids having similar symptoms & give a good nutritious diet to her that will improve her immunity & make her strong to overcome minor illnesses.

thank you:-)
