UPDATE! Baby's Rash. What should i do? (Mom's With experience only please)
UPDATE: We just got back from the hospital. It is hand foot and mouth disease. We gotta let it run its course which could take about a week. Thanks for the help everyone!
I noticed these spots on my son yesterday afternoon. They didn't look that bad then. At 3:00am he had woken up and I checked his legs. They had gotten worse so we went to the hospital. The doctor didn't do anything but look at them. He said it could be contact dermatitis. We haven't changed anything but our laundry detergent but that was almost 2 weeks ago. I only noticed these spots yesterday. He said to see our primary care physician in 48 hours for a check-up or to come back to the hospital if it got worse. It started on his arms and legs and now we have noticed small red sorta dots on his hands, feet, and cheeks. He goes to daycare as well but has been there for about 2 weeks as well.
This was last night
He is 18 months old and does have appointment with his pediatrician at 9:15am tomorrow. I just don't want to wait if it something serious. He did get his Hep A and DTap shots the day before I noticed the rash but I doubt that would cause this.
I would rather not hear go to the hospital UNLESS it is something serious. I just want to find out if other moms have experienced this and what it could possible be.
