It's been a while since I've posted in Mothering - my baby boy has been keeping us very busy.
He just turned 8 months today, doing well overall, has two teeth on the bottom and another one coming from the top, is BFed and happily chubby, and is starting to figure out how to crawl.
The other day, though, we saw a bump on his bottom, right near his little anus. We took him to the doctor and she sais it looked like an infection. She doesn't like prescribing antibiotics but because of the location, gave us an antibiotic cream to put on it after cleaning.
A week later, it's still there. It looks like a little pimple with a a white head, reddish around. But it is firm to the touch.
She now believes there's more stuff underneath and referred us to some pediatric surgeons. We now have an appointment on Tuesday for a possible cutting and draining.
As new parents, we're scared, worried, etc.
Anyone else have any experience with this kind of thing?
