Well, I didn't see my regular dr and I was not too impresed with this dr. He said he would suspect herpes if someone in the family had it but he doubted it. He also said herpes would be more widespread on the body. (Both of these things I know are not good arguments probably..) He just said it was just one of those baby things that will go away on its own. He gave some a script for some Bactroban to put on it.

I'm not sure what to think. I asked the dr if he could have gotten herpes from someone in church (lots of people touching on him) and he told me he tells his patients not take their babies out of the house until 2 months, after the first set of shots. That didn't make much sense to me, seeing as how there is not a HERPES vaccine.

SO... I probably should have just not taken him. It looks a lot better and two of the bumps are almost gone, leaving a brown dot. Plus, the waiting room was FULL of sick kids, sneezing and snotting... I just know we will probably catch something.

Sounds like a wasted trip...sorry mama! I retract the coxsackie suggestion, btw, if those are still the only bumps your babe has.
