:roll: to the doctor not having a clue. Hope it clears up soon. I had the same problem with a rash Katie had. Thankfully I sent my sis (who's currently doing her GP training) a pic and she diagnosed what it was for me. :wine: .

ARGH, in a nutshell, Benjamin slept into to 8.55 this morning, after actually being cuddled to sleep last night by about 9pm. Opened his nappy as soon as he was out of bed and the little spots seemed to have turned into horrible blisters, and there were more spots on his knees, and odd ones in other places. He had a quick breakie and off to a&e.

diagnosis a form of streptoccacal infection which looks like impertigo a little bit. he apparently is infectious and should be kept away from other children for a couple of days. He has antibiotics and no more idea what to do, apart from see the gp on Thursday which is the first appointment we could book last night as a follow up.

oh dear...poor dolly.

do you have tea tree or nappy soak for your nappies and wipes? and more soap than you have ever used in your life for your hnads and his? i have a cousin who had impetigo which was super duper infectious and had to be covered up at all times till it healed completely
