weird redness

DS woke up this morning with the upper palm and the knuckles on the back of his hand all read. its a little swollen as well. he is not upset by it, i can squeeze and he doesnt cry or squirm, he's breathing fine, so wth is going on? i also dont see any bug bites around it. its just weird and extremely random. any insight? btw he's 11 months old if that helps.

  • I'd call the doc, maybe he is allergic to something... my daughter has eczema, and the slightest things get her skin going, but when in doubt call the doc. better to be safe than sorry.. good luck to you...

  • got tired of waiting on dr to call back, so they squeezed us in and good thing too. something prob bit/stung him but it ended up causing infection in his lil hand. somewhere between bedtime and this morning. so lil guy has antibiotics and should be better!
