We took our 1 yr old to the doc yesterday b/c he has a bump on his leg and 2 on his bottom that I knew right away were MRSA. They are and the doc ordered antibiotics and cream for him but they are getting worse faster than the meds can work! His pain is bad, when I hold him he cries b/c I am putting pressure on his sores, and it is almost impossible to change diapers without him screaming! I feel so bad for him but his doc said we caught it early and he will be fine with the meds, just wait for them to work! I'm rotating tylenol and motrin for his pain, but I had MRSA a while back & know the pain is almost untreatable even for the smallest of infections - I had to be prescribed something for my pain & it still didn't help much! I am doing everything I can to keep him happy & comfy until he heals but I don't know anything else I can do to help soothe him!Answer Question

There is prescription pain medication for children. Call the doctor back and demand it. A child being terrorized by pain is completely unacceptable. Turn on that "Momma Bear."
