I babysit my friend's children quite frequently while she goes to work. The children are all under 3 so I usually bathe her two and my DD together. Well the other day after I bathed them I noticed that her son has what looks like a nasty rash on his butt, legs, and upper back. Two of the spots on his butt look like rings (but I looked up pics of ring worm and it doesn't look like ring worm). His butt and thighs are a horrible inflamed red color.
The next time I babysit I really don't want to bathe the children together. I know her 3 yo will tell her if I don't bathe the youngest with them. Her pedi says it is dry skin, but I really don't think it is just dry skin. How would I explain to her I don't want to bathe the children together until whatever the LO has is cleared up?
