Allergic reaction, measles, or chicken pox? edit @page 1
I have Lina a both/shower last night and we were out of the body wash that she normally uses so I used Irish Spring on her. This morning she had a rash from hell on the insides of her thighs and some spots on her stomach. Kept her home just in case. Dr looked at it said she thought it was an allergic reaction and that she has seen a lot of patients that have a reaction to Irish Spring but no other soaps. So Lina has been on Benedryl & Benedryl anti-inch cream but the bumps/rash has spread up her her belly and chest and some under her chin and it looks like a couple on her face.
Called back like I was supposed to and the Dr on call said to use hydrocortisone on the rash keep giving her Benedryl and watch her some more and if the itching doesn't stop or the rash continues to grow then take her to the ER. She'll be in the bedroom watching cartoons and after about 20/30 minutes she comes out to tell me she itches then goes back in for another 20/30 minutes then she is back.
I gave her a luke warm shower and washed her really well with the normal soap to get all the Irish Spring off her skin if there was any still there, had to cover 50 percent of her body with hydrocortosone. OH and I discovered I am allergic to hydrocortosone so when I have to put it on her I have to make sure that I use some kind of pad then wash my hands really well.
Praying for NO ER. I don't think that I can get that lucky tonight.
