This sounds similar to what my son had a couple of weeks ago, it started on the Wednesday I took him to the doc he had conjunctivitis then on Thursday and Friday he had a temp. Then on Saturday morning woke up with spots on his back, neck, behind ears, on his stomach and in his head the spots were working there way down his body. I took him to the doctor on Saturday because my baby is only 9 months so I was up the walls. The doctor told me he had measles, if it was measles it was a very mild dose because by Monday morning the rash had faded and he was back to himself maybe just a little tired for a couple of days. I'm not convinced it was the measles maybe there is a bug going around with similar traits to the measles.
I hope your ds is on the mend
Sounds exactly same,he had a green sticky eye wed/thurs......im relieved to read your post,hes had the MMR ,think ill keep a close eye on him today...thanks again for your reply....jane
