Friday night difficult child had a rash on back of both legs near buttocks. No itching, just "V" rash - skin color raised. Bedtime so I just say, "Hmmm let's see if it is still there tomorrow." Saturday morning rash is gone in that location but there is a rash on back of leg near the ankle. I put cream on and said, "Hmmmm let's see what happens with it today." Saturday night - a little rash but not much. Sunday night, breakout on BOTH legs and this time itchy. This time only between ankles and knees - nothing near buttocks. I put some more cream on. Overnight, HUGE itchy breakout on both legs. The best I can tell with my very limited medical understanding and an old medical book with pictures of rashes is that is is hives. But what is the allergic reaction from? Rash subsided during the day to the point it was hard to see it. I had given him a pair of pants straight from the store to wear and I think he ended up wearing them two days in a row so we took those away. difficult child took a bath Monday night and slept in my bed. During the night the rash returned but not to the extent as the night before. I had a doctor appointment for myself this morning so left for Fargo leaving difficult child home. I called the psychiatrist 1st - could this be from medications? Nurse didn't think so but would pass it along to psychiatrist. In meantime, try washing sheets in new detergent and vacumming mattress. Called pediatrician doctor and asked nurse if she though this could be from Thursday's H1N1. She says everyone reacts differently but nothing to indicate this would be the case. She asked if I wanted to bring him in. "I can't until later today". The doctor was only available until noon. We can either take him to children's walk-in or call pediatrician doctor at 7:30 tomorrow morning. doctor needs to "see" the rash which is only happening after hours. therapist's nurse called back. Yes, it can be from the medications. If it comes back again we will take him off the Citralpram and find something else. So, I am washing sheets in a new detergent and will see what happens tonight. If he comes home from school and has problems before 7:00 pm tonight, I can run him up to the walk-in clinic. It is an hour away but if I am there before 8:00 they will see me no matter how late it takes. If this evening is o.k. and he has troubles with the rash returning again overnight, we will get up early and be on the road before 7:30. I can call the doctor at 7:30 to say we are on our way in. If he can not see us, we will be at the walk-in when their doors open. Getting a doctor to "catch" this after hours outbreak will be a challenge though I believe the signs will still be on the skin even if the rash subsides by the time a doctor gets to us. Of course, I will be on the phone to psychiatrist with updates and results. So, have any of you experienced this? Any ideas of what else I should be looking at or doing? Shoot - I should have taken a picture of it Sunday night. I will do that if/when it returns. P.S. Couldn't do anything with it Monday because we were in a blizzard.
