Would you expect a call?**UPDATE**

So I am going to ask the question first so that I can get unbiased opinions. Then I will fill in the details in a few min.

Looking at the pic in reply 1, should the parent of this child expect a call from daycare? This rash popped up about 5 min after eating lunch...


**UPDATE**

ok so here is why i posted. 

I do home daycare and this boy attends my daycare. He is 2.5(3 in dec) and has never had any allergic reations before. I noticed this rash about 5 after we ate lunch. I took a pic and called both parents, no answer! I texted both parents and asked if anything like that had happened and if it was ok to give him some benadryl. I sent them both the pic. 

Dad answers and says he is leaving work to come pick up the child. After about 20 min the child is asleep for nap. I let him lay on the couch so i could watch him in case it got worse. About an hour later the dad still wasnt here but the boys rash had started to go away. I texted dad and said it was looking better. Dad got MAD!!! he said he left work for no reason and i shouldnt have called unless i KNEW it was an emergency!!!

I didnt even know what to say....

dad decided to not come pick the child up untilt he regular time(4 hours later) and he went home to mow the lawn and take a nap instead(i know he took a nap because he overslept and was 15 min late picking his kids up...

Yes. I would assume it was a food allergy and he needed medical attention if it happened just after eating

Yes!!! If that was my child I would raise hell. Food allergies can be dangerous.

Yes especially if it popped upright after eating.
