Okay, so it wasn't teething
Conway was in again today to see the pediatrician because he has had a rash on his trunk since Tuesday afternoon. After one glance, our pediatrician said immediately, "That looks like a classic case of Roseola." The definition is: Age 6 months to three years, presence of a fine pink rash, mainly on the trunk, fever during the preceeding 2 to 4 days that cleared within 24 hours before the rash appeared, child only mildly ill during the time with the fever, child acting fine now. She said it's actually more likely to be an enterel virus but they don't all have names. She said the rash shouldn't be causing him to itch or anything and he shouldn't be contagious as long as he has no fever. So, turns out it was a virus after all. His eating has picked back up some today so hopefully that's all it was.
