This is going to be long so if you hang in there with me, I thank you.
Ryne has had what looks like small red pimples on his arms and legs for at least a couple months now. It started out with 1 or two of them here and there, nothing to be overly concerned over. I initially thought his skin was reacting to something and thought nothing else of it. They didn't seem to bother him, no itching, no peeling or dry skin, no fever, no vomiting, etc. He basically has no other symptoms. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago when I notice there seem to be more and more of them. They are spreading to his legs, his back, belly and chest. I call and made an appt with the pedi. I go in yesterday, my pedi is on vacation until next week but the other doc in the office looked him over. She has no idea what it could be but told me to put cortizone cream on it for the next week and if it doesn't improve then I have to take him back and see my pedi who may have some different ideas of what it is. So I have been putting the cortizone on him and today I noticed on his armpits and underneath his arms he now has what looks like HUGE hives but they are not raised if you run your finger over them. Could it have been the cortizone burned his skin?
Here is a pic of what made me take him to the doc in the first place
and here is after cortizone cream
I am really scared and have course been googling which I know you shouldn't do...I am just wondering if I should make another appt with the pedi even though she didn't know what they were anyways? or should I take him to the ER? :confused:
