My son is 13 months. He's had a fever since Wednesday morning was misdiagnosed as teething that day at an urgent care (whole other story ugh) and Friday was diagnosed with croup, ear infection and sore throat on Friday by his pediatrician. He is on Omnicef and just finished prednisilone for croup. He woke up yesterday with a rash starting on his head spreading to his trunk but by the time the doctor called back it was gone. He woke up with it worse this morning. I did leave a message with the nurse and
She said she would call me back after speaking with the doctor. I'm
Sure they are busy there are a lot of sick little ones around
I will post a picture soon but any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm wondering if he has strep? They didn't test him for it but they did say his throat was really red. They had already tested him for the flu which is yucky enough so I'm sure they didnt feel it necessary to jab him with another swab if Omnicef could treat it anyway.
They called back said I could give Benadryl and if he started swelling or wheezing to call back. That the prednisilone would help with the rash

Strep in small children is an interesting thing. Some Drs swear they are just carriers and nothing else, others insist that they can be symptomatic, but if he is already on Omnicef, which is also used for strep, they probably wont give him anything else for it. It COULD (the rash) just be a reaction to the medications, how much longer does he have on the omnicef?
depending on where it started it what a rash can tell you... my daughter had a similar rash and all it was, was a virus. Freaked me out as she had just gotten her chicken pox shot. cleared up in a couple days. Started in her private areas and then spread.
