Too young for pimples. . .

. . .but hives?  Or contact dermatitis?




She woke up with some red on her neck and was scratching the bejesus behind her ears. She's on antibiotics for an ear infection (day 6 of 10) and it's her second round in the last two weeks. I also put some very old sunscreen on her face and neck two days ago. Called the doctor, they said if it was antibiotics it would be more wide-spread. By this afternoon/evening, her arm pits were covered, with some red areas looking raised. She also had scattered spots on her trunk, her arms, and two bands on her legs, right at mid-thigh level. I gave her some antihistamines so she would stop pulling off her skin, so she wasn't itchy anymore, but the bumps!!!


Poor kiddo.  At least she got to watch Elmo (maybe her second time ever) and eat a Nilla Wafer. OK, two wafers.

Ahh poor girl! Time to get out the oven mits. Hope it disappears as quickly as it showed up!

Awww... Itchy bumps are no fun!

Straight from a bad cold into a worrisome rash. She's keeping you on your toes!

It looks like it's not slowing her down much, though! I hope it clears up quickly!
