Here are some updated pictures, one from yesterday, and a few from today. We have been giving him oatmeal baths, keeping it under wraps to prevent his scratching, and putting a basic otc neosporin type ointment on it. The individual "blisters" are still yellow, and are forming crusties. but the overall redness and inflamed surrounding area is down. No new eruptions today, still have (all of which are starting to yellow and blister form) two on his lower back, and the patch above his knee.
We called the Family Practice office we go to, where they politely asked that we just monitor it, as we have, keep a clean bandage on it with the otc, benydryl and if more start to pop up, or the yellow turn green, or he is screaming in pain if you touch it, then to call and make an after hours appointment. I understand, as much as they don't want to risk exposing other "well-baby" visit children and misc to be exposed to what they say could be either:
MILD CHICKEN POX
JUST A PLAIN DRY SKIN RASH ITCHED TOO MUCH.
Today he is fine, doesn't complain about the pain in the area or touching it like he did on Friday prior to bumps, or Saturday. And FYI if you have been playing with my kid at all since last week, look out for them if it does turn out to be Chicken Pox. If it is the other stuff still be wary, but if they kids didn't poke at the spot (and who would it was covered by his pants) they will be ok.
Sorry Belle, we will be checking you all over today too.
PS I was told it could be a Messuli... thing by a few people, but it didn't come up with chatting on the phone with our favorite doctor. AND they can't do more than what we are doing for they above, except give a pain medication for the shingles.
