My baby is sick

Ryan has a mysterious rash all over his body. Red raised bumps. His eyes look like he has shiners under and above each eyelid.

Now he has a fever of 101.2.

Good times.

I soaked him in baking soda bath mixture last night and it seemed to make the rash on his legs get better, but the upper torso and his face still have it. He also is irritable. And miserable.

Mama don't like miserable babies. Miserable babies make mama sad.

Looks like a trip to the doc is gonna happen, on a Memorial day weekend Sunday. Looks like my baby is gonna have to be miserable and not see the parade. Looks like my poor baby is sick.

Good times.

My sympathies - I hope he feels well soon. It's so hard when your kid is sick, because you can go crazy trying to soothe them.

Can I pester you with one piece of unsolicited advice? Oatmeal baths work good sometimes when the baking soda baths don't. Oatmeal has small amounts of salicylic acid in it, which an unrefined version of aspirin. It's messy, but it works fairly well for my kids when they have allergy rashes. If this is old hat to you, sorry for bending your ear!

Hey all... he has an ear infection and the rash was his body's way of fighting it. :O(
His rash is still there, but not as red and nasty as before. Four and a half long hours in the ER and he was ready for home with a prescription and a face stained with juice and popsicles from the nurses who were spoiling him.

My poor bebe.
Thanks for all your well wishes, and Katie, mucho thanks for the oatmeal advice, I shall try that!

Been there with the rashes... I feel for you. Is he itchy or uncomfortable? Benadryl seems to help with itching.
I hope he gets better real soon!

Kids still get scarlet fever? I dunno. Good luck, Mari.

So sorry about your baby being sick, and for the long wait in the ER. But hopefully he's well on his way to recovery now. Little ones rebound so fast.

Glad the mystery illness turned out to be an ear infection, and hope he is feeling better today.
