I took my 6 month old son in last week for his 6 month check up and shots, and he was perfectly healthy at the time. That evening, he had a fever, which was expected, however, he also started to cough, sneeze and get a terrible runny nose. We even noticed he was getting these little red bumps, like red pimples almost, all over his body, mostly his torso, neck, and back of his head. I took him to his pedi, who said it looked like a viral rash, that it should go away after about 4 days; that was day 3. The next day we took him to the ER for a second opinion, and that dr agreed but gave my son antibiotics for bronchitis, JUST IN CASE, he said. Now we are on day 8 & although the other sypmtoms seem to be clearing up, the rash seems to be holding strong. I think I'm gonna take him in again tomorrow, but just curious what other moms think... Thanks in advance.Answer Question
