Spot the baby

The Little Madam is well on the road to recovery, thank you very much. The poos are are now infrequent and olfactorily unobstrusive, the appetite is back and so is the urge to walk everywhere (which is killing my back).

But now there's a new worry. Since last night TLM's arms and legs have been covered in little pink spots. They don't seem to bother her at all, and they are definitely not meningoccal septicaemia spots. It's been suggested that they're heat rash, from her earlier fever, or else a viral skin infection piggybacking on her tummy bug.

One thing I'm not going to do though - if I can help it - is look it up on the Internet. The last thing I need is to fill my limited head space with the gory details of obscure and scary skin afflictions. I'm just gonna keep an eye on it over the weekend and get her back to the doctor's if her skin hasn't cleared up by then.

Glad TLM is feeling better. The rash doesn't sound like anything serious..

Good idea not to put any scary thoughts in your head. Us momma's just worry too much already.

I'm doing okay so far. It's been about 40 hours and I still haven't been to Google...

avery had something similar and the pediatrician said it was comonly known as the 3 day measles.
first couple of days with extreme temps. followed by pinhole like rash over entire body. Dr. said there was nothing to do once the temps went away. the bumps will last about another 36 hours.
hope things have cleared up

avery's mom: it does sound a little like what TLM had. And it did go away after 3-4 days too.
