Is Slapped Cheek Syndrome the same or related to Fifth's Disease?

My son, as a child, acquired Fifth's Disease several times between the ages of infancy till he was approximately 5 or 6. The symptoms and photo look very similar. He had white hair and extremely fair complexion. It spread through his Day School quite rapidly. Anyone's child have Fifth's Disease or is it another name for the same thing?
