Topic: ***updated Help! Hoping someone has seen this.(pics)
Hey all, so again I am here to ask your expert parenting advice....We moved to Charleston South Carolina 3 months ago and its been nothing short of a nightmare...From the horrendous heat, to the flooding, to the bugs......again....the bugs...I advise you never EVER move here as cute as it may be....
So we are now plagued with a mystery rash and 5 pediatricians, I repeat 5 have said they HAVE Never seen this and sent us home....This rash started on R's feet and has literally been spreading for almost two weeks. It is HORRIBLE, blistery/burn/ different sized clear fluid filled almost blisters covering his whole body except his belly and back.... We first thought it was Hand Foot and Mouth, but apparently its not that, they said it could be scabies so we treated it, NOT scabies, we are literally at a loss, I haven't slept...I have cried for two days because i fear it causing scars, i mean people are looking at him like its the plague and since NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IT IS, we don't know if its contagious, if it is an allergy to the pesticides they use...SO we took out all factors and are staying at holiday inn up the road...HAVE any of you seen this? I am desperate and NO medical professional can explain it......I am truly beside myself (he has been vaccinated, he doesn't go to daycare)
It is now day 10 and it still is spreading with no one being able to help, some areas are clusters of a bunch of tiny ones and some are huge! He is very uncomfortable its itchy its absolutely AWFUL!
