Well it started on a Friday morning. She had a dr. appt this morning anyways due to she had been pulling on her ears and got a fever of 102.5. No biggie until I undressed her and noticed tin red bumps covering her arms and legs. So the dr. said she does have ear infection and put her on amoxocillin.. as for the rash.. he was not sure what it could be.. it was not on palms or heels so he said to watch it until the next day and see how it looked and how she felt. So Saturday comes and its not better or worst really. Just kinda the same. Low fever no biggie had a lil runny nose. Well I took her to ER just to be on the safe side cause it was a lil freaky to not know what this rash was. Called it "viral Exanthem". something viral and nothing can be done just keep an eye on her. so okay.. good.. I can handle that I guess.
The NEXT FRIDAY comes and she wakes up and is covered in SEVERE rash that is very rough and blister looking in a few places. it is all over my baby.. hands, face, arms, legs butt, back belly feet, neck,... so I took her to the Dr, and they ent us to Children Hospital ER. I was really scared but couild not figure out what the heck was going on! The first rash had gone away and Kairi has been perfectly fine with no fever or anything. Only thing was she had not had an appetite for food but would take her bottle okay. So in ER they discovered again.. that it is whats called viral exanthem.. which means she had a virus and it could be out of a list of 800 different things. and said just to keep watching her. If she gets fever or anything worstens to come back. I cant believe my baby girl looks like this and there is NOTHING that can be done for her. One dr. said there are only a few rashes that will cause bumps on palms and feet and none of them is what she had.. weird huh.. So I went home and within about 4-5 days Kairi rash cleared up and now shes fine. It was sooo crazy! My baby looked awful and it was really nothing but a virus of some kind. The second day of having the bad rash she also developed fifth disease.. where the cheeks looked red from being slapped..
fifth disease typically produces a distinctive red rash on the face that makes the child appear to have a "slapped cheek." The rash then spreads to the trunk, arms, and legs. Fifth disease is actually just a viral illness that most kids recover from quickly and without complications
""Exanthem is the medical name given to a widespread rash that is usually accompanied by systemic symptoms such as fever, malaise and headache. It is usually caused by an infectious condition such as a virus, and represents either a reaction to a toxin produced by the organism, damage to the skin by the organism, or an immune response. Exanthems may also be due to a drug (especially antibiotics)."" but hers started before antibiotics..
This happened Last week so like May 29-30th
