06:46 am: Rash
Teddy has one. Most noticeably on his face, but also on other, hidden bits. We first noticed it on Monday. It was mostly gone Tuesday morning, then back Tuesday night. It looks like maybe Fifth Disease, which apparently mostly goes away on its own.

Because most other rashes don't go away on their own, we'll get it checked out. And while we're there, we'll ask the doctor to have another look at Teddy's tonsils. When I checked him for strep (no spots - and he has no fever either, so I don't think that's it), I was surprised at the size of those tonsils.

Anyway. We shall see.

Or Peter will. I gotta work and he can handle this one just fine.

Hope you get this figured out. I'm going to the dr. tomorrow for a rash or at least dry, sore, itchy skin around my eyes. Finally I'm going after having this for over a month.

But the doctor says it's ok and to continue what I've been doing. It is definitely getting better.

I'm glad you're going to get yours seen to, too. Geez! A month is too long to wait!

Well my "ocular rash" is caused by some bacteria and I don't remember the name of the condition the doctor came up with (after leaving the room to look it up to make sure, so she could submit the proper diagnosis to the insurance company). She prescribed oral antibiotics and said it was a bacteria similar to the one that causes acne. I thought it might be a fungal type thing. Hopefully the meds will do the trick in 2-4 weeks as she said. Them someday I can wear mascara again... How is Teddys rash?
