Missed By That Much

Julie was complaining this morning that her feet itched. Given the way that she refuses to wear socks given any opportunity, I was guessing that we might want to wash them.

But then daisy_knotwise told me that Julie had a rash on her chest. Uh oh. I spent a minute Googling and told Gretchen that she should call Julie's pediatrician, because -- although she'd been treated for her strep infection and was feeling better -- it was possible that she had a strep infection in her skin somehow, despite the amoxycillin she was taking. And that would be bad. Especially with FilkONtario coming up.

The good news is that the pediatrician announced that Julie has a minor case of amoxycillin rash, apparently being a bit sensitive to it. She's to stop the antibiotic (which had two days left to go) and the rash should clear up shortly.

Phew.
