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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
