    It might be a bit out there, but is it possible that it's not just his skin that's sensitive? For example, could it be that he's actually got really sensitive hearing or something as well?

    The reason I ask is that perhaps he's hearing things while he's asleep that's influencing his dreams and because he's asleep he's not able to process the sounds etc.
    I'm just trying to think of other things that could be an issue . Must be so awful to see him going through that .

    It could be that too, youre right eko. He also sometimes gets very afraid and says he feels monsters tickling him. Im thinking that might be that tingly feeling from his blister sores healing? Or something to do with his sensitive skin. I think a trip to his pediatrician would cover all possibilities for a start. Im thinking of asking his gp about any counselling services/programs for kids with anxiety that are free or cheap in the meantime while we get back on our feet financially. He has this reoccuring fear that the sun will turn into a red giant and 'blow us up' (He learnt about stars turning into red giants in a science dvd he was watching about a yr ago) and we also lost a loved one when he was about three who was very old and passed on, and he now fears everyone he loves will die.

    Hes always been an anxious child and I think I need to get him into something to improve that with him asap.

    As it turns out he has gastro which explains the vomitting and being run down would have certainly affected his experiences last night. He is cheery now though drained and we got a few giggles out of him.

    Doctor was great aparently they had an at length discussion about angry birds and mathletics.

    For now he's on hydrolite water and chicken soup and Im calling up about his pediatrician.

    We always leave their doors wide open with the hall light on. High levels of anxiety surely would have a lot to do with this? He's a very oversensitive anxious child.
    Yes, I agree. I have anxiety issues too, and from what I've read the two things are often linked. Certainly in stressful times I notice a marked increase.

    You could see if you can get a mental health care plan from the GP? That will give you free (or just pay the gap) sessions with a psychologist. I think you get 6 or 12 sessions a year, and you can go back and get more if you need.
