Today I found out that one of my students has Fifths Disease! I called my dr. as soon as possible, because I knew that it could affect pregnant women, and the nurse was very reasuring, telling me the chances were slim of complications, but that they would do blood work to test for it. I was actually exposed last week, so I have to do the blood work sometime this week or the beginning of next week. Hopefully I had it as a child, so I would be immune to it.
The secretary staff at the school were kind of rude to me about it, saying that adults can't get Fifths Disease, and I was like, "well the dr. seems to be concerned enough to want to do blood test."
Does anyone have experience with this?
