My 17 month old got a bug bite yesterday that started swelling and streaking this morning, so I took her in to the ER (pediatrician doesn't do weekend calls ): I wanted to avoid that but was very concerned when streaks started to run.
They nearly admitted her for IV antibiotics, but gave her an oral dose and sent me off with a prescription instead. Benadryl, too. I picked them up.
She's never been sick and I hate giving her any kind of medication at all. But I don't want to risk a blood infection, so I'm giving them to her.
Anyone have any advice on what to give her, diet-wise? She still nurses frequently. Or just advice in general. I'm just so crushed to have to give her antibiotics. We were doing so well!
