To the mommas living in or around Mississippi (warning-picture of rash)
I took my youngest to the doctor yesterday.He had gotten this rash and it was/is like nothing I've ever seen before.The pedi said that they have seen a lot of this rash in the last 2/3 months. It is contagious by skin to skin contact and the doctor said it can take up to a year to go away. It is called Molluscum Contagiosum. This is what it looks like :
The only reason I'm posting this is because if this rash does show up on your child you have got to TRY to keep them from touching it. If it is on their belly and they rub it then go on to touch thier face it will show up on their face. Each new place it shows up on can take up to a year to go away.There is nothing that can be prescribed and unless they have like 50 of them in one area they will leave it alone and let it take it's course.
