And by most of the time I mean every two to four days a few pop up. They go away quickly and are usually only on one or two limbs. None on his chest or head or face anymore. Well, maybe one or two very rarely.
Everett’s spots don’t get better. The spots on their own don’t seem to bother him in the slightest and don’t worry me (or his doctors so far) except that Everett’s syndactyly surgery is fast approaching and after calling and talking to Everett’s surgeon’s assistant I’m told that if the rash isn’t gone or there isn’t a solid diagnosis to exactly what it is, they won’t operate.
So the dermatologist doesn’t give us a ton of information. She says she doesn’t think his spots are from the amoxicillin and she does think they’re from that virus he caught and that certain types of rashes from viruses can last up to 6 weeks. So she asks to see Everett back in 4 weeks and says to cancel his surgery until the spots go away.
So we cancel Everett’s surgery (later that day) and reschedule it for a month later, on July 14th, and then it’s back to wait and see.
We go to Everett’s pediatrician today. Allan had scheduled the appointment for me becuase my phone didn’t work that day. He schedules with a different doctor than we usually go to. Michael Milobsky.
I like this new doctor a lot. He says he thinks the rash of spots is a different rash than the one Everett got the week we had the flu and thinks it is a reaction to the amoxicillin Everett had for his ear infection.
I’m not sure. Rashes are confusing things. But what can you do?
The doctor gives me a referral to a dermaologist and says to see her if his spots don’t get better in a week to 10 days.
I forget to get a picture of Everett on the exam table but do take these:
Everett comes down with the same fever Ember had the day before. And he explodes with spots! They’ve been fairly isolated to his thighs for the last couple of weeks but now they spread to his face, too! I worry and schedule a doctor appointment. And I also take a bunch of pictures for his scrapbook!
