Last weekend, we took our six-year-old to the ER because of a really quick spreading rash that looked like his face was being eaten off. It turned out to be impetigo, and they gave him two antibiotics injections, oral antibiotics, and a topic antibiotic ointment. It seems to be clearing up, although he now looks like he has a weird case of scabby sunburn.<br><br>
Anyway, they cultured it and I would really like to know for sure what it is since I am pregnant. Would they have sent the results to my family doc? Do I need to call the hospital? I would hope that if it was not impetigo and was something I need to be concerned about, they would have let me know, but I don't want to leave that to chance.<br><br>
Thanks!

Did you give them your Family Docs name? If you did, then you should contact your family Doc for the result. I would start there.

I did, in the triage paperwork stuff. I think. It was midnight, so I'm a little fuzzy on the details, LOL! I'll call tomorrow. If they don't have it, maybe they'd be willing to track down the info.

Sometimes we get out of Gabrielle's specialist appointments and I go "He said what?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Then I have to write down questions and call the assitant.

Yeah. Oddly enough everything was negative-- nothing but normal skin cells. Weirdness.
