Help! My mother was recently exposed to fifth disease. I’m seven months pregnant, and I have been advised to stay away from my mother. I had never heard of fifth disease before; it’s not even mentioned in the books I’ve looked at. What are the symptoms, how dangerous could it be to my baby, and what should I do now?
