He went to school yesterday and when he came home, the rash had spread to his face, his ears, his head and it was covering his body.
He also developed a nasty diaper rash throughout the day too and we weren't sure if the rash was the culprit. It was so bad he cried when he had to sit down...it was so pitiful!
We decided to schedule him an appointment.
I called the doctor's office and we were able to get him a 7:30pm appointment in the after-hours clinic.
The doctor took one look at him and knew exactly what he had. Bear had a viral rash, pityriasis rosea, and it will go away on it's own. It could take up to two months for it to clear but no medication is needed!!
What's up with my kids and their crazy viral rashes?!
Hopefully we're on the right track to getting our little man feeling better! Nothing like a late night at the doctor's office...we like to keep life interesting in our household!
*Update: Barrett's diaper rash is healing so nicely. The medicine really helped after one night and he was getting back to his old self this morning. I love my boy's sweet smile!
