Yesterday after bath I noticed that Asher a had couple tiny pink spots on his tummy. They were seriously mini-squeal. And I didn't really think much of it. The kiddos have had that b4 when they are getting over any kind of cold, sniffle or whatever. The dr had always told us that it is just another way the infection gets out of the body.
Then around 2pm or so in the afternoon I noticed this.....
b4 bed this is what it looked like....
Then worse of all was this a.m. when we woke up....
Waiting at the Dr office.... we ended up having to go to convenient care b/c our reg dr office was booked solid.
So, the Dr finally made it in. Turns out he has Hives. Awesome. The Doc said that hives can be caused by like a zillion reasons, but since Asher had had a little cough and a runny nose he said it was most likely due to a virus and it's just one more way for the sickness to come out. So, once the virus is gone, so the rash will be also. They did give him a steroid shot....which let me tell you he just loved ;p NOT and we picked up an antibiotic for him to take over the next 12 days.
The best news is it's not serious and it's not contagious! yay! So Christmas plans are still in full swing!
These pic's are only an 1 1/2hrs after he got the shot. Already clearing up in a big way! Yay!
Lots of love!
Update: He just got up from nap and hives are pretty much completely gone! Holler!
