Rashes, or exanthema are red markings that usually appears as a consequence of some infectious diseases (such as measles, scarlet fever, rubella, infectious erythema, etc.), and are more common in childhood than at any other time in life. They may also originate as a reaction to other causes such as a virus(known as viral rash) if accompanied by fever (sudden exanthema) which can affect babies during their first year of life. Sometimes the rash is the symptom of a disease of unknown origin, requiring urgent attention to evaluate and diagnose the degree of severity, or if it is due to a drug reaction.
