How is roseola diagnosed?

Roseola is usually diagnosed based on a complete medical history and physical examination of your child. Because the rash of roseola that follows a high fever is unique, your child's physician can typically make a diagnosis based on a simple physical examination. Your child's doctor may also order blood tests to aid in the diagnosis.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
