Strep Throat

Arwen woke up this morning and I inspected her skin. The rash she had wasn't necessarily worse but it wasn't better either. I decided to take her into the pediatrician just to be safe and it's a good thing I did.

Turns out she has strep throat (a first in our home) and the strep in turn has caused her eczema to flare into infintigo. She's fully medicated and on the mend but keeping her apart from the other children for a full week is going to be impossible.

Fun stuff.

Healing vibes to Arwen! My brother used to have impetigo all the time and it is so tough to keep other children in the family from getting it. Hope she is healed soon!

Ahh! Oh no! Hopefully she mends soon and the others don't catch it! (fingers crossed)
