4.14 Rose Rash

Rose Rash. Roseola. False Measles.

Symptoms. The summer rose rash appears first on the arm, face, and neck, thence it spreads over the whole body, producing tingling and itching. It is usually preceded by the symptoms of fever chills, succeeded by flushes of heat, languor, pains in the head~ back, and limbs, restlessness', quick pulse, and thirst. The rash appears in small irregular patches, paler than those of measles, and of a more roseate hue. There is some hoarseness from inflammation of the throat. The rash never continues more than five days, unless it be merely partial, in which case it sometimes comes and goes at intervals for weeks. If it ,strike in," it generally produces disturbance of the stomach, headache, and faintness, which are relieved by its reappearance.
The autumnal rose rash is in more distinct patches than the former, of a circular figure, slightly elevated, and of a dark dama8k rose hue. Seldom any fever, or itching and tingling.

Treatment. For the first described form of the disease, light diet, acid drinks, and gentle laxatives; for the second, recipe 59 or 51, according to convenience.
