Wednesday morning I noticed a red bump on Enzo's finger. At the time I thought it was a bug bite. When I picked him up from daycare yesterday he had several more red bumps. One of the daycare kids has been out all week with hand, foot and mouth disease so I thought I better take him to the urgent care. The Dr said since he has no bumps on the bottom of his feet or in his mouth he thinks it's chicken pox. He said that it is the time of year they start to see it. He said that it usually is onset with a fever and Enzo hasn't had one but that maybe in part to just getting off meds for being sick and trying to prevent pneumonia. Poor guy has been sick off and on since 6 weeks and the Dr says it's because he's in daycare and also exposed to germs that Addison brings home from school as well.
The one bump on his finger looked like it was getting infected(from constantly putting his hands in his mouth) so the Dr gave an antibiotic for that and stated if he woke up this morning with bumps on his scalp, face and more on his body that it's definitely chicken pox.
I took him back to the Dr on Thursday after work due to more bumps appearing and the ones he already had getting redder. The Dr stated it is chicken pox and started him on Acyclovir.
