It Just Keeps Gettin' Better...

Took Middle to the Dr. today. Was SURE it was a sinus infection, with the runny/stuffy nose and congestion. Failed to take into consideration that the few scattered red dots on his face around his mouth and on his chin were something other than a mere skin irritation (from sunscreen?). Nope. Wrong. He's got impetigo. And did you catch (no pun intended) that it's not just contagious, but highly contagious? Oh. My. God.

Please refer to me as Linda Lysol or Betty Bleach from here on in. Or perhaps Lucy Laundry.

I remember having that as a child.

And that word has rendered fear into me since.

Lysol away.

yikes, you gotta get a break here somewhere !!!

Major Bedhead said...

Oh dear. You certainly are having a run of bad health. I hope you can get everyone well again quickly, before you lose your mind or spend all your money on disinfectant and Tide.

Good luck....remember remotes, phones and door handles. Those are my biggies when there is a contagious bug going around here. :)

Annie said...

Oh MAN! I feel for you.

My daughter has a rash all over her body - bunches of what I'm assuming is hives, that come and go. I've just been giving her benedryl - and she does have a horrendous cold, - but now you have me wondering (nothing like a bit of paranoia to start the day!)

Hope your little guy gets well soon, and that nobody else gets it.

Joy, of course! said...

Girl! I am OOOZING with sympathy for you. What an awful bout of illnesses you all have had. I hope it passes soon and you will all be well and NON-CONTAGIOUS soon.

Oh, boy! Sounds like you have a fun week ahead of you! Is it Wine Thirty, yet?

Shauna said...

Oy! You poor thing. Take care. Wish I had something more insipiring to say...

CakeHead said...

Oh you poor things, sending lot's of healthy wishes your way!

Mrs. Chicky said...

No fun! Poor kid, hope he feels better soon.

Zander had impetigo when he was a few months old. He had it right below his nose, and we couldn't get him to stop touching it....which meant that it spread! What a pain in the butt! Hope you can get it gone soon!

Tinamtl said...

I think Ari had that too.

Don't forget pacifiers. They are carrier's ;0)

BIG HUGS

Uggh. I hope you don't get it. A few years ago we passed pink eye around for awhile. My friend's son was the primary source. "The doctor said he's no longer contageous," she said as she dropped him off. Yeah, I looked beautiful in my ten year old, totally outdated glasses at a dinner party that weekend. I hope your crud passes soon.

I just found you...cute blog...stop by and visit me sometime.

Oh gosh, super contagious. Good luck with the lysol and bleach.

Poor baby! And right after his birthday, too. Hope he's feeling better soon and no one else catches it.

By the way, love the new family photo on your sidebar!
