My dd has had bronchitis and been on antibiotics for past week. Now this has appeared,i first thought it was dribble teething rash but now worried it might be impetigo. Advice please. Also if it is impetigo do I take her to ooh docs or wait till Monday for app?? hmm

I'd go to out of hours and get it looked at, as if it is impetigo (it looks like it could be) then it can spread like wildfire both on DD and to others. If it is impetigo and she gets antib's straight away it will cease to be contagious within 24 hrs

Is it weeping? Be very careful to wash hands and everyone to use their opwn towels after touching her.

Possibly cold sores?? If so, they are very painful and very infectious too.

Been to pharmacy first as was in Sainsbury's they reassured me it wasn't blistered so likely not impetigo. I got some cream and hopefully will work

What a relief! Hope your little one is not in any discomfort and it clears up quickly.

She was just rubbing it and it looks sore to me. I'm over anxious when it come to dcs illnesses and sometimes feel like I over react blush

Hi Gizmo, glad you've got it sorted. And I wouldn't call it an overreaction - always better to be safe than sorry in my book! Fingers crossed the cream works quickly. All the best to you and dd - she looks a cutie! X

I don't think you've overreacted at all. Hope it clears up and your DD feels better soon. It's not nice wrong them itching and feeling uncomfortable

ShowMePotatoSalad Sat 14-Jan-17 16:17:21

seeing them itching, that should say. Don't know where wrong came from

Thankyou smile yes she is a cutie. She models actually and has a shoot on 25th so hope it clears up by then 🙏

Hi again, Gizmo - just checking to see how your little girl is now? Hope the cream is working. And how fab that she's modelling! Must be super proud.

GizmoFrisby Mon 16-Jan-17 14:04:44

Yes the cream is working. She's at nursery today as I'm at work. It's about cleared up now. Yes ha I am proud of the little diva.

Ah, that's fab news - thanks for updating. Was thinking about the dear little soul over the weekend, bless her! You both take care & no doubt our paths will cross again on MN! X for you & X for our future supermodel! Seriously pleased.
