I love medical mysteries...
When they are on shows like House or ER.
I hate them when they happen to my family.
I took Elliora to the doctor yesterday, fully confident that they would have a solution for her rash/acne/face disease. Much to my dismay, the doctors (yes, they had to call in more than one) were unable to determine just exactly what this mysterious rash is.
One was convinced it was baby acne. But, I quickly caused her to doubt, stating that the timing of my taking amoxicillin and the day the rash broke out was too coincidental.
The other had no idea, but encouraged me to stay away from the antibiotic for at least a year. "If it were my kid, I wouldn't risk it."
But, neither offered me a solution in getting RID of the rash. Which was my purpose in going to the doctor in the first place.
So, Elli woke up today with what looks to be a worsening condition. I've been off the antibiotic for more than 4 days, drinking lots of water, and there is no improvement. Today, her eyes are swollen and she looks like she has red hives. Its almost like she got a sunburn from the inside out. The areas that are the worst are dry and peeling - and fire engine red. Poor thing. Have any of your kids experienced this?
Please pray that she gets better soon. Otherwise, we're back to the doctor demanding answers and a solution.
