What would you do?

My 21 month old has red bumps on his leg and belly and he has been crankey for the past few days. He also had a fever a few days ago but that seems to be gone now. I am going to take him to the doctor tomorrow. I just wanted to see what other mom's would do and or if anyone had any idea what this could be.

  • I would give them either Tylenol or Motrin, it sounds like chicken pox.

  • I would take him to the ER of course chicken pox and measles can usually wait but there is this other thing my daughter got that kids can get from lots of platic stuff, one off which is a plastic pool. The doc said 1 more day she would have been critical. I took her the day she broke out, I can't remember th name for the life of me, but it scared me to death. I hope he feels batter and good luck.
