Hi girls, i'm back again but it's been a while since i've been on here. I don't know how you all still find the time.
We've had a bumpy few weeks where Paige has been sick on and off. About 6 weeks ago she had a bit of a cold which came with a face rash and conjunctivitis ( the doctor said she was probably rubbing snot into her eyes (gross)). Then about 2 weeks ago she had a few random blisters which we (meaning me, the clinic nurse, the pharmacist, and the doctor) all thought was going to be chicken pox. This came 2 days after Paige was eligible for the free chicken pox vaccine.
After another 24 hrs the spots looked like huge craters not the usual scabby chicken pox lesions and the GP diagnosed impetigo - school sores. I felt even more grossed out, where did she get it???? my other 2 girls (4 & 6) don't have it. Now, another 2 weeks later she has another virus with a rash all over her chest, back and tummy which is really itchy.
Paige now has a rash head to toe which is itchy, a heap of glandular lumps all over the back of her head and is generally miserable most of the day.
Her medicinal routine is getting to be a chore with antibiotics 3 times per day, antibiotic cream 3 times per day, paracetamol 3 times per day plus antihistimines 2 times per day, needless to say she is getting pretty fed up with the whole thing.
I feel so helpless and don't know how long it's going to take to ride this out (already 6 weeks and counting).
Hope you are all well, and i'll try to keep up with current happenings, lol
