BAD rash ...

Post by D on Fri 20 Sep 2013 - 8:49

Hello Ladies,

Please respond. Have any of your kids ever had a rash like this?? We went to a normal GP - she had a fever for 3 days and they said it was a throat infection. She broke out in this rash yesterday ... we took her to the doc again and they said that it was a reaction to the fever she had as well as the bacteria in her throat. To be safe they changed her antibiotic from the one she was on (had penecillin) and this one now doesnt have penicillin. This morning she looked like this ... its on her back and chest as well - yesterday was not so much on the fac like today. I just want to know what to expect - this is very bad for me - is it going to get any worse before it gets better??? Thanx!

Also - she doesnt have a fever anymore and slowly she is starting to eat better again. I have a problem with her milk - she doesnt want more than 80 - 12 ml at a time and she has a bottle 3 times a day - she just doesnt want to drink. She eats though - so I am giving her more cerelac and yoghurt .... but I feel she has lost weight - I dont even want to weigh her because I know I stress alot .... I HATE that she gets sick so easy - she isnt even in creche yet - if its lik this now - whats gonna happen when she gets to creche????

I know there is a measles outbreak, not trying to scare you. But possibly the fevers...

Zeke looked like that last year Dec when he had measles. Also as Monz says, the fevers are an indication...

I am sort of betting on measles though... Especially on the back, behind the ears, etc. They don't even have to have fevers. I know Eve's son (both?) currently has the measles and he didn't even present with a fever.

To top this all of she is teething - the top 2 teeth - one is out and it looks like another 2 are on the way - my poor baby

Maybe phone the paed and ask if the treatment is suitable for measles and if yes, then just continue. Shame man, what a sucky situation!

Hello Tarryn - she is MUCH better - with the rash that is. Its almost gone. Her antibiotics finished today. The problem now is the freeken teeth. How many can come out at the same time??? The big bunny teeth are both out now ... but looks like the ones next to them are on the way too.
Im worried cos she now doesnt want her milk! I dont know if she doesnt like the taste anymore ... The past two months she has decreased what she drinks - now she wants only about 60ml at a time - and thats it.

Oh good, maybe a slight reaction to the AB's... poor child. Glad its sorted.
Oh yes Rach would get 4 teeth all at once. Does she have a teething necklace? I swear by them.
Thats fine, she is a big girl now. Is she eating? I wouldnt stress about milk at all. As long as she has about 250ml a day.
