Important! Slapped Cheek Syndrome.
We have had some cases of this virus in school. NHS Direct advises that children are infectious when symptoms include a high temperature of 38c or more, a runny nose/sore throat and a headache. You can ease symptoms by drinking lots of fluids, taking paracetamol and applying moisturiser. It is not necessary to stay off school after the rash appears because children are no longer infectious by then, though some may feel too unwell to attend. Further information overleaf.
Note: If you are pregnant and have been near someone with SCS, you must speak to your midwife.
