When you show a Pokemon with pokerus to nurse joy she'll say it has pokerus and that it'll grow exponentially. BUT when you look at your Pokemon after the check up you'll see pokerus is gone! but instead a small, pink, poker face will appear. What does that small face represent?

It means that your Pokemon has gotten over with the PokeRus. The pink poker face means that it HAD been affected by the PokeRus. Even though the PokeRus is gone, your Pokemon will still gain the additional EV boosts and such.

The Small Pink Smiley Face Icon represents that a Pokémon has been infected with Pokérus but can no longer infect other Pokémon with the virus.

Note: When a Pokémon has this icon and can no longer infect other Pokémon with the virus, the positive benefits still remain, so it will still gain double the EVs after you have defeated a Pokémon in battle.

The small pink smilie face means that the Pokemon has already been cured of Pokerus. If you leave a Pokemon w/ PKRS in your party past midnight (whether you DS is on or off), it has a chance of being cured of PKRS, and is no longer able to infect other Pokemon with PKRS, though it'll still gain double EVs while training.

The small pink smiley face means that pokerus is gone. The Pokemon would have the face instead of the regular Pokerus symbol.
The only change between the Pokerus symbol and the smiley face is that the Pokemon that has pokerus cannot spread pokerus. Pokerus will not spread to other Pokemon if the smiley face is present
However, the Pokemon will still gain double evs after battles.
Hope I helped!

Here:
That means your Pokémon already had it. The reason she even mentioned it was because your Pokémon HAD it, at one point. Like everybody else said with the leaving it after midnight stuff, she was just telling you. GOING TO THE POKEMON CENTER DOESN'T HEAL YOUR POKES OF POKERUS! Your just happened to have a Pokémon with Pokérus in the party. Good! Now that Pokémon gains double EV's! Try global trade and you might get a Pokémon with Pokérus and spread to the rest!
