The common exanthems were numbered in the early 1900s and include in numerical order: rubeola, scarlet fever, Filatov-Dukes disease (now considered to be several viral diseases rather than a single entity), rubella, erythema infectiosum (fifth disease), and roseola (sometimes called exanthem subitum or sixth disease) (Adams & Ware, 1996).
