Itchy red bumps

Itchy red bumps, sounds fun right. Our poor little guy has them all over the place. They started on Saturday morning on his little bottom. It started with three and then they multiplied through out the day. They then went to his legs, thighs, hands, arms, mouth, tongue, hips, chin, ears, waist, and genitals.

They are the worst on his bottom and the biggest. I of course did not take pictures of his bottom but here are a few. They don't seem to hurt when we touch them, but he has had a fever 102 or less and has no appetite. We are going to the doc tonight they didn't want us there during busy hours and we have to be seen outside the office all together.

So hopefully we will know what these itchy red bumps are. I think they may be the chicken pox's but I have no clue. Will update later after the doc tonight.

It is impetigo~ and we are now on antibiotics!

Impetigo? Oh poor thing. Hmmmm... Maddy had a rash like that last year but they chalked it up to a reaction to the anitbiotics she was on for pneumonia (she also had a fever). I wonder...

Hope he gets better very soon!

And thank you for the nice comments on my blog. And as if you didn't already know, Sean too is lucky to have such a wonderful caring mommy. Keep doing what you're doing because it is working. His sweetness is very evident from your blog!

Hi Erin,
How's Sean doing? I hope his rash has gone away. Gabi has something similar right now. She has Roseola "baby measles" :( Did you find out what it is? Chicken pox? Well anyways, I hope he is feeling better.
