Hey, just wanting to know your thoughts see if i can put my mind at ease.
Yesterday brought DS to GP after a horrible sunday night we took him to ER as he had fever that wouldnt go away. We waited at ER for a good 2 hours by the time we got seen by a doc and by then the nurofen had kicked in and DSs fever was gone. Doc didnt find anything. But yesterday he was still not well thats why we went to seek another opinion from a different doc who said maybe its tonsillitis, red raw throat.
My son is 7 months btw, so he cant tell if his mouth hurts, he is excessively drooling too every time we put liquids in his mouth kind of hangs his jaw and lip a bit so he doesnt have to swallow either. weve had to try keep him hydrated by syringe feeding breast milk and hydralite. he s on a course of antibiotics right now.
anyway this morning i found two red marks on his arm between the folds of his chubby arm where his wrist is. do you think it could be foot hand mouth disease? we went to a kids bday party for the first time on Saturday and these kids all go to day care. im still at home on mat leave so DS has had very little exposure to all these nasties.
I just called GP and was due for check up again on Thurs afternoon but I called to move it forward to tomorrow morning. hate seeing bubby like this. he cant even tell me what's wrong. he's slightly better but still looks pale and took a bottle of EBF after his nap earlier today and one BF during the night.
can two red spots like that be hand foot mouth? cant see in his mouth to check for blisters or anything he clamps lips tight
so anxious wish i could get an even earlier appointment but i guess i have to wait till tomorrow morning now
