Preschooler Pretest
Question 1 of 85
The grandmother of a preschool-age child calls the clinic to report that the child has had a fever, has been fussy, and now has a rash that started on the neck and has spread to the rest of the child's body. The child was exposed to chickenpox about 3 weeks ago. Which of the following would be the most important advice to give the grandmother?
 
1.  Bring the child in immediately so the diagnosis can be confirmed.
 
2.  Treat the child's symptoms and use diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for itching.
 
3.  Be sure the child stays quiet, and limit the amount of television viewing.
 
4.  After the fever is gone, the child can return to day care.
