Well, I rewashed the sheets and gave him a really long bath last night, but he still woke up at about 3:30 in the morning with a really bad case on his throat and near his mouth. Also random small breakouts on the ankle and back. This is the first time they weren't confined to the trunk. I thought I saw one inside his mouth, and I was freaked out that he might end up with breathing troubles this time, so I gave him some Benadryl and we went to the emergency room. By the time we got there- 20 minutes away- they were all gone again. They fussed about his vax status
, talked about his cough (which was not that bad IMO) and said 70% of hives cases never have the cause determined and that this is one of them. They recommended that if it continues, we follow up with his pedi and maybe get a referral to an allergy specialist.
These are painfully itchy, he cries and pulls my hand to them to try and get me to help scratch. He's a hot-blooded guy, and does sometimes get sweaty at night, but the past week its been very cool at night- and he won't sleep with anything covering him anyway, so I can't imagine him getting hot enough to break out. He doesn't seem sweaty when he wakes me up. Right now, I'm thinking either a cold/virus is causing this, or maybe a reaction to something the vitamins had in them (like Shitake mushroom extract). He hasn't had the vitamins since Friday, though.
I don't know. I guess I'll call his pedi and see if they wan't to get him in right away, or wait and see what happens.
