My Allergy Boy

Charlie was born 2 months too early. I don't know if that has anything to do with

  • eczema
  • environmental allergies
  • lactose intolerance
  • bad vision

However, that's the cards he is dealt. In the last 8 days, Charlie broke out in a rash 4 times. Mysterious symptoms are not foreign to my house, so I grabbed my camera and took pictures. After the 4th episode, I called the doctor. Enough is enough, right?

Ya know, it doesn't matter if your kiddo has a stomach bug, a rash or getting chemo. Mamas still cringe when our babies hurt.

The doctor confirmed that the rash is hives. We could not pinpoint what the allergic reaction was caused from, but the doctor would treat it the same way regardless. So he is on steroids and antihistamine for the next few days.

Due to the bullets listed at the beginning of the post and this new hives outbreak, Charlie will be set up with an allergist in Springfield. Yay... right?
