Fith Disease

Were you looking for information on Fifth Disease? Fith disease is a common misspelling of fifth disease.
Fifth disease is an illness caused by parvovirus B19, which is commonly transmitted through saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus of infected people. The disease is characterized by a rash that resembles a slapped cheek and is typically found in children. Some symptoms of fifth disease can appear before the rash, such as low-grade fever, chills, and body aches. There is no treatment to kill the virus; however, fifth disease is often a mild illness among otherwise healthy children and adults.
