The HV came today and I showed her (it has not got any worse or spread) she said if it were impetigo then it would have spread very quickly. She said it looks more like a rash from where he has dribbled (he dribbles a lot) or his dummy has rubbed on it.

So basically..I over reacted a smidge!

It's not crusty, red and bumpy

Is it a bit of crustiness around the mouth? (apologies if that's a shadow on the photo! ) if so, it does look like impetigo to me. sad

I am paranoid it may be impetigo...which is just what I need, he had conjunctivitis last week!

Anyone feel free to tell me I am over reacting! sad sad
