Fiths Disease

Were you looking for information on Fifth Disease? Fiths disease is a common misspelling of fifth disease.
Fifth disease is characterized by a rash that resembles a slapped cheek. Most commonly found in children, the condition is caused by parvovirus B19, a virus that is typically transmitted through direct contact with saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus of infected people. Symptoms of fifth disease that can appear before the rash include low-grade fever, chills, and body aches. While there is no treatment to kill the virus, fifth disease is usually a mild illness among children and adults who are otherwise healthy.
