Since the doc will be checking her body anyway I have a few more things to ask her. Might as well get my $40 worth, lol. Alana has had 2 large lumps behind her right ear for nearly a year now. When they first popped up I asked the Pedi and she said, "Oh, she's probably just fighting an infection. They'll go away soon." Well, they never did but they quit hurting her so I just ignored them. With this recent health scare I figure nothing should be ignored anymore. Also, she's got some rashy looking patches on her back that itch her intensely. Once again I ignored them thinking they'd go away, but last night she had scratched them until they bled. I'm thinking it is eczema but I could definitely be wrong. I just need the doc to tell me exactly what it is so I know what to put on it.
It is always something with this kid! lol
Don't eczema/allergies/asthma often go together?
I'm glad that it wasn't malignant!!! What a huge relief.

For those whose kids have eczema, what does it look like? I googled eczema images but what I saw doesn't really look like what Alana has. The images I saw looked red and hers is flesh colored and even a little gray. It looks like elephant skin I swear, lol.
My kids looks like a patch or peeling sunburn.
Both Eli's and Faith's are mostly flesh colored. I am a HORRIBLE photographer, but I'll try to get the patch that Eli currently has on his leg that came back. That is I'll take a picture after the batteries get charged.
ETA: A flesh colored patch sounds like a good description. And the one on Faith's bottoms got infected (very quickly like less than a couple hours quickly) looked like a burn.
