Somehow contracted 5th disease from someone


Hi everyone!! Ok I have a question. My daughter has somehow contracted 5th disease from someone in her school. I’ve been diagnosed with hashimoto’s and have nodules. I know from other parents 5th disease isn’t a big issue for her but should I be concerned for me? Thanks so much for any advice you can provide

  1. It is just a virus, isn’t it? You should be fine in my opinion

  2. begin taking l-lysine since it is good to help fight viruses. In adults, the main symptom is joint pain, usually in the wrists, ankles, and knees. It can be more severe and potentially dangerous for pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems. If you have a weakened immune system, your doctor may need to closely monitor you until the symptoms disappear.

  3. unfortunately this can be worse for adults-I caught it from my sons several years back and was laid up for a while. This was before Hashis.

  4. I already have joint pains from hashimoto’s and my immune system isn’t always the greatest. I tend to catch every cold. So this 5th disease has me worried

  5.\nMore info. Says after rash appears probably no longer contagious.

  6. You don’t need to be more concerned than someone without Hashimoto’s would be.

  7. I had that years ago. I caught it from my friend’s children. Ugh! But over in a week. She’ll be fine.

  8. I had 5th disease as an adult. Not much fun (fever, followed by a few weeks of achy joints), but it wasn’t something to be particularly concerned about with Hashimoto’s. Good luck!

  9. You’ll be fine. Why wouldn’t you?

  10. It’s possible. I definitely get sicker and more often than before my hashis

  11. Honestly many ppl with hashis test positive for having had multiple viruses, fifths disease included. Fifths can be dangerous to a pregnant woman

  12. By the way, the rash appears in children, but not very often in adults. By the same token, kids tend to just get the fever and rash, but not the joint pain that most adults will suffer with. 🙁 My son got the bright red cheeks… and that was about that. Me and my hubby got the fever and the achy joints for several weeks. When it happened to me, I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s about 8-10 years earlier.
