If it is any consolation DS (who is only 9 months) has them all over his groin and indeed on the end of his willy, both eye lids and rims, really badly along his top lip, in his ears and in his bum -the wee scone is covered. His first spots started on Sunday too - new ones today were on his hands and legs so I am hoping that is him done. It is blardy awful.
my dd just had cp she had the all over her bits poor thing, its normal to get them on warm parts of the body, my ds has just started to get them today (sigh) and his first one was on his bum so i wouldn worry hope she gets well soon
im using Calamine lotion for her head as its full of blisters and calamine cream on her body - i just slap on loads plus 2 baths a day....but no i DO want to get some oatmeal stuff from the health shop but i cant as im stuck in!!
do you have any porridge? If so put some a sock/tights and dangle it under the tap as you run the bath - water should go cloudy - that helps. Make sure water isn't too warm. DD2 (who is 3) is just recovering and she told me that aloe vera gel felt lovely when I applied it for her.
