He ended up with an URI and ear infection, she put him on abx after a few days when it wasn't clearing up, but no steriods because of the CP.
A few days later the cough was worse and he was vomiting when he'd cough and fever returned with a vengence... Went to ER, had chest X-Ray, it was pneumonia. Both lungs. A second abx prescribed and he was 90% better by the end of the 5 day course, 100% better by day 10 after diagnosis.
Now it's been 3 weeks or more since we had a crusty scab and THEY'RE BACK!!!! Scalp, torso again!
Here's the clincher. None of his unvaxed cousins (4 of them) or unvaxed best buddies (2 of them) whom he played with when he had blisters, before I knew what CP looked like, or his own brother(!!) got the CP!!
I don't think it was ever CP.
WHAT IS IT?? No one can seem to figure it out. Or is it back? I"m starting to freak out a bit.
