  • It is a potentially FATAL infection. TAKE HIM TO THE DOCTOR. It is a blood infection that can cause serious problems. Please heed this advice. He needs to be treated.

  • wow. You need to have him treated right away! With all the crap imported from other countries and the lead paint they use it may be an infection.
