Dermatology Infections: Viral--Treatment


John L. Bezzant,M.D.

The patient may or may not have a viral syndrome, but quite often develops postauricular and suboccipital lymph node enlargement. The red macules and papules of the eruption start at the forehead, and then continue to erupt in a downward direction. The eruption generally clears starting from the forehead and the eruption usually only lasts about three days.
