Sounds a little weird, but I'm wondering if it's related. Last week, DS (20mo) had chicken pox. He had a pretty bad case, but no complications. His rash started on Tuesday and by Sunday he was definitely "done" and all crusted up. On Tuesday, we noticed he was rather warm, and he was still clingy. He did develop a fairly high fever (around 102°) by evening, but it decreased throughout the night and hasn't returned. He's still pretty clingy and wants to nurse constantly.
Holding him this evening, I discovered that the skin on his toes and the soles of his feet is peeling. I can just see very thin lines of the peeling white skin. His feet do seem a little dry, but nothing terrible.
I'd probably not think more of it if it weren't for the fever the other day, which only was of any concern because he was just getting over varicella. I haven't found much by Googling (other than that peeling feet can be related to things such as strep and toxic shock syndrome), and so wondered if this was a normal thing with natural chicken pox cases, or something to be concerned about.
(I knew I shouldn't have Googled TSS... Just did and it lists one possible avenue for infection as sores like in chicken pox.
But he doesn't seem to have the rash that's typical of TSS, so I highly doubt it's an issue.)
Soo... Anyone else see this after the pox?
