Spotted Tot

So....this is what "severly allergic to augmentin, amoxicillin, pencillin, and all of those other '-cillin' family meds" looks like. :-(

Poor little man started out last week with a bad ear infection in both ears and had to take a powerful antibiotic for it. Well, as of last night, he had finally had enough doses for his body to realize that he is severly allergic to those types of antibiotics. He literally went from just a few spots to being completely covered, head to toe, in huge red bumps and welts in a matter of hours. After another trip to the clinic, he is now taking steroids and benadryl for 5 days to stop the reaction.

Wow!! What a week it has been so far.

Please keep little David in your prayers.
