Well, Alana woke up this morning with a bald spot in the middle of the back of her head. I noticed it when parting her hair for pigtails and I'm 100% sure it wasn't there on Tuesday, the last time she wore pigtails. It is about the size of a penny with no signs or irritation. It doesn't hurt and it doesn't itch.
Because she had some suspicious looking bruises on her legs too I decided to take her to the Pedi this afternoon. She took a swab of the area to be sent off for testing but is treating her for ringworm of the scalp in the meantime (it takes 4 weeks to get the results back). She didn't say much about the bruises.
My gut tells me this isn't ringworm and even the doc said she was only about 70% sure that's what it was. Just wondering if anyone else's kiddo has had this and what it looked like. Also, how was it treated?
