Ok.. this is a bit longwinded so I'm skipping straight to the point and if anyone has questions ... we'll get to that later LOL
Lil man developed a rash ... it started on his inner thigh.. moved up his butt and down to the back of his knees and looked like a nasty diaper rash by this point.. but it also has extended with what looks like prickly heat rash up his chest and back and a little on his cheeks ...
To the questions... after a Pedi visit we think we narrowed it down to either a spider bite gone nutso or an allergy to honey.
We're leaning towards the spider bite because he always reacts badly to mosquito bites ..and i hate spiders so blaming them works for me lol
Has any one else experienced a severe reaction to spider bites or honey.. he has had honey and not reacted but he has been eating more of it lately so it is possible.
We've pretty much ruled out all of the usual new soaps, diapers , food etc .... its not diaper rash, yeast rash , eczema ...chickenpox, measles etc .. no strep throat, no ear infection... I am so lucky to have a kid who never gets sick.. this is the first time we had to visit a Pedi for anything but shots.
Pedi thinks hives or spider bite .. a day of antihistamine syrup and some steroid cream and it's already reduced in redness ( only used it on major areas because I really don't like that stuff and figured it absorbs so should work over the minor prickly heat style rash, but will use it on chest and back and face if they worsen )
Pretty much I just wondered if anyone else had kids who react badly to bites and had rashes well away from the bite site?
