Calling Doctor Mom!
Last Wednesday Littlest thought she noticed some bug bites on her arm and leg.
By Thursday night she had developed 2 nickle sized blisters on one leg.
To which Doctor Mom said, UGH, That might be staph!
The next morning the real doctor looked at it and said, I don't know, it might be an allergic reaction.
To which Doctor Mom just sniffed. (Thinking, yeah right, I've seen staph before) I've been a mom for 25 years thank you very much. I've seen everything from a chicken pock on an eyeball to Middlest having a weird tumor in her hand called a tumeral calcinosis usually found in patients with kidney failure and South Africans. She's a medical anomaly for the books!
So he put her on Claritin and possibly, because Doctor Mom looked at him like he was a moron, some super duper antibiotic.
Because it's STAPH. Yucky sores with nasty pus in them are staph.
Am I wrong Doctor Mom?
