For the last 2 days, baby girl has had "cold" like symptoms - sore throat, low-grade fever, malaise. Then, this rash broke out on her neck and arms. Mommy nurse gave her some Benadryl. By the second day, and no response to the Benadryl, took her to the Pediatrician. Throat cultures came back this morning. Diagnosis?
Gotta go get Amoxicillin and keep her out of school today. Bummer. I have not missed any time from work this year, but, Baby Girl needs her Mommy.
My Mom told me I had it BAD when I was about 4. Spiked temps something awful where she was putting me in a tub of alcohol and ice (I remember that!) and the rash was so bad my feet were peeling and bleeding. Baby girl's isn't bad as this at all, but she will definitely have some peeling around her neck.
hmmm, wonder what time Oprah comes on...
