DD(5) hs impetigo - horrible looking sores around her mouth and eyes and ears. they came up on Thursday and are nearly all crusted over now. She is on antibiotics and looks horrendous (she also has excema which has flared up!) but otherwise fine.

Do you think taking her to the park in the sun for a couple of hours is good idea? - Her siblings are going mad with boredom. I don't know whether the sun will make it worse or better.
