How is fifth disease diagnosed?

Fifth disease is usually diagnosed based on a medical history and physical examination of your child. The rash and progression of fifth disease is unique, and suggests the correct diagnosis. In addition, your child's physician may order blood tests to aid in the diagnosis.
