He has been sick with a runny nose and cough. Now he is breaking out in hives. Of course, my husbands aunt tells me I'm wrong even though I know what hives are and know babies can get them from having a cold virus which he has. So now I'm being told to take him to the ER. I can't get her to understand that he is not having trouble breathing and he is not swelling. He is acting completely normal so why take him to the hospital and sit there for six hours when all they will do is give him benedrly and send us home ? I tried telling her I already called his pedi on his weekend number and was told to give him Zyrtec. I will be taking him to see his pedi tomorrow anyway. She thinks she knows more than his pedi and said to me well if he does from anaphylaxis , it's my fault. I know she means well, but I also know this is not an emergency.
