Risk calculators and risk factors for Roseola medical therapy

Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]; Associate Editor(s)-in-Chief: Omodamola Aje B.Sc, M.D. [2]

Overview

There is no treatment for roseola, it is a self limiting disease that resolves on its own without any medical intervention but antipyretics can be used as a supportive therapy in cases of high fever.[1]

Medical therapy

The mainstay of therapy for roseola is supportive as HHV 6 typically causes a benign, self limited illness in infants and antiviral therapy is not indicated.
