Miss Pip has a rash. A big ugly red dot causing, looks like chicken pox rash.
She has been teething.
She has been fussy.
She is not sleeping.
And as of last night her little face was covered in red bumps.
We thought it was chicken pox, then a virus (think herpes), and then I started googling.
Yes, I am one of those mother's who self-diagnoisis according to WEBMD and BabyCenter.com.
Using the information I found on those sights and my pretend medical degree I decided Pip could have had the mumps, impetigo, or hand foot and mouth.
Luckily, we went to the real doctor this morning,
And luckily he knows me all too well and took time to rule out all of my diagnosis.
Turns out Miss Pip has a bacterial infection. Most likely from all the drool and the teething.
She is taking antibiotics and we are hoping to see a 24 hour turn around.
