Have you heard of Fifth Disease? I hadn't either until someone I know mentioned it.

As fall turns into winter, we hear a lot about the flu and find an abundance of related information, but what do you do when you are looking for quick, easy-to-read information about other communicable diseases? Enter Washtenaw County Public Health. They have an entire page dedicated to fact sheets containing accurate, up-to-date information about the latest bug to hit the college dorm or kindergarten classroom. Of course, this is no substitute for medical advice or diagnosis, but here you can find out more about what something is, what the symptoms are and how it is treated.

I remember when my daughter had Fifth's as a baby! I hadn't heard of it either till then. I didn't realize adults can get it, though. Thanks for the info.
