Our Latest Doctor Visit.

So sometimes this kid turns red in different places and swells up for no apparent reason. Now the medical people have doodled all over him and he's on antibiotics. Poor Woodjie.

  1. That looks uncomfortable. There's no sign of any bite? Mosquito or something? Are the areas painful at all? Have they x-rayed to check if the bone is okay?
    I hope it gets better soon. That's Woodjie isn't it.

    1. Yep, little Woodjie. No sign of any bite, but they're very specific hot and raised spots in different parts of his arm, not like a broken bone at all.

  2. I'm allergic to red dye #40. I figured it out when I drank one of those cheapo sugar loaded kids drinks, and swelled up like a prize fighter during the night.Even a vitamin that includes it will send me itching. I check labels now...you'd be surprised how many food items it is in.

    2. I'm going to ask about allergy testing and see if doc goes along with it.

  3. It's not hives? I have a friend who's daughter gets pressure hives. And both my kids have gotten them at weird times. The ped said sometimes they are a symptom of a low-grade virus.

  4. Is it just sensitive skin I have that and sometime come up in big red lumps but they don't last long.
