DS1 had spots/rash last week having played in the bushes.

Tonight he has spots on his torso and they are different and we don't know what they are.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 08:05:18

Temp this morning - 37.4

Says he feels poorly and has tummy ache.

Kids and their mysterious rashes!!

I guess maybe by the end of the day you'll have a clearer picture of what is going on. Hope he feels better

He has always been a rashy child but these are spots and just kook really strange.

LucyMinter Wed 08-Jul-09 10:34:02

Are they in your book? I guess you've already looked. Maybe he was bitten by somethign?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 10:53:15

Oh heck, never thought to look.

Will do so now.

He didn't eat this morning either which isn't like him at all.

Has he had chicken pox?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 11:18:52

He has and tbh it doesn't look like it.

According to my book he has ringworm but I rang DH and he said no.

I will see how he is this afternoon. School haven't phoned yet.

I've had ringworm. It was very definite circles of scaly redness and itchy.

Had to use canesten cream as I was pregnant (gp would have given me oral meds otherwise, apparently). Dh had to minister to all the bits I could not get to - and there were many with such a big tummy!

Why does your dh disagree with ''the book''? grin

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 12:51:24

Because he is a Doctor. Clearly I misheard him when he said he was in finance. hmmgrin

They don't look scaly. Just normal skin but red circles.

DesperateHousewifeToo Wed 08-Jul-09 13:22:58


Well Doctor Desperate agrees with you.

Maybe take ds to your GP to settle the argument check what it is.

DesperateHousewifeToo Wed 08-Jul-09 13:23:42

Sorry, that should have been ''Doctor Desperate''.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 13:27:47

Oh bugger.

Surgery shut until 4pm. And at that time you have to be half dead to be seen.

DesperateHousewifeToo Wed 08-Jul-09 13:51:58

You could tell them that your doctor- husband thinks he has the plague. Should be be seen quickley then grin

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 16:06:47

developments sad

his teacher meets me to say he has struggled but tried really hard and is very tired.
he is pale, has eaten nothing all day except for strawbs ( he is never off his food), is sleepy and floppy and temp is 38.8 but he says he is cold

LucyMinter Wed 08-Jul-09 16:45:32

Oh poor thing. Does he still have spots?

Numberfour Wed 08-Jul-09 17:44:18

fab, my ds is the same but no spots..... high temp, floppy, very very tired and wants a blanket on him. he is NEVER like this.

........... going back to see your other thread now. hope you're okay.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 08-Jul-09 18:40:33

Oh no Numberfour. sad

What are you going to do?

DesperateHousewifeToo Wed 08-Jul-09 19:59:55

Dd was like this at the weekend (minus the spots)- super tired, temp, lack of appetite. I did wander about swine flu for a few hours but she perked up a bit on sunday although appetite only just returning.

She is still very grumpy though hmm

FabBaker and Numberfour, hope your two dcs are ok.
