Emily's body is covered in a rash. She was crying last night and scratching around her diaper area, so apparently not only does it look bad but it feels bad as well. Our regular pediatrician was out of the office, so we saw another who was in the office. His first question when he saw the rash was, What antibiotic did she just finish? Before I could answer he replied to himself, "Let me guess, penicillin. I laughed and said yes. He said that her rash was a classic allergic reaction to the antibiotic. The fact that her father and I are both allergic to the same drug is further indication that it is for sure the culprit. The good news is that she is NOT contagious. The bad news is that she will get worse before she gets better and there aren't any topical ointments that can help. The doctor said that Benadryl might help the redness and itchiness. Hopefully I have a bottle that was not recalled!
