Okay,so.... Toddler boy moms? Can this wait till Tues? ETA
Well, today, it's inflamed. Red and raw. I put A&D on him tonite...should I be using neosporin?
Can a pedi visit wait till tues when the office is less full of children that got sick over the holiday?
Will Motrin help?
Yes, alot of questions.... I've been out of the toddler game for eleven yrs so my memory of this is pretty far back in my head. Is it an infection that I need to get immediate medical attention for tomorrow, or can I wait till tues ,or is this something I can heal at home?
And please, I can't go back in time and uncirc him so telling me this wpuldn't have happen if... (insert rage here) will not be helpful.
ETA: I took him in today, it is "just" a skin infection. Hah! Any infection the requires an antibiotic cream and 8ml of amoxicillin twice a day isn't a "just". The cream mentioned that it treated skin infections similar to Impetigo....I remember that one being quite uncomfortable when he had it last year.
Thank you all for urging me not to wait.
ETA AGAIN: I forgot to mention, pedi said the my son's head cold probably didn't help. His body cannot fight both well. He suggested the head cold may leave quicker now that the bacterial infection is now being taken care of.
The ones that you love the most go away to soon, the others just never go away...
