My baby girl started yesterday with a slight fever. Near the end of the day, her belly button was looking red and slightly swollen
. I put on a little hydrogen peroxide and it didn't bubble (I didn't expect it to, her belly button is totally healed by this time of course).
Today her belly button has gotten much worse
. She still has the low fever, but her belly button now looks like a tick bursting with blood
. I'm away from home, and the doc I took her to had to give her a shot of antibiotics
because she immediately threw up the liquid antibiotic. My groovy
pediatrician even agreed with what this doc did. They don't think it was a hernia.
Her appetite is fine. This is the first time she has had antibiotics or has been sick in the least. I can't find anything on the internet about this. Has anyone had any experience with this? I hate that I am away from home and my DH.
