Your child’s temperature can either drop suddenly or rise quickly. Just remember that the ‘three day fever’ it’s not rubella although their symptoms are very similar. There is a vaccine against rubella. Going back to the three day fever (Roseola). Usually the fever ends the same day a pink rash appears.

Lots of rest, dress him/her in light pajamas, and if your child has chills just give him/her an extra blanket until it stops.
