Ok. My Aunt calls and ask me to pick up her son from a class tomorrow. After I say Ok, she tells me her older son has been ill with a fever, nausea, and now a rash since yesterday. Of course, she is asking me the symptoms of West Nile and after convincing her that that is very unlikely for a healthy person, particularly 9 yo boy, to come down with, I told her call a Doctor. These symptoms sound familiar and not until now-LATE- did I think to ask if he had some type of vax for back to school (they are quite mainstream). Any ideas? I am nervous picking up his brother now, but the fact is my kids interact with strangers often and who knows what they have or have been exposed too. So I doubt 10 minutes in a car with someone related to a sick kid is dangerous....just a paranoid Mama there.
The fever + rash is my concern-any ideas?
