TRUST YOUR MOMMY INSTINCTS!!!
Okay. Here is goes. A week and a half ago Miss K started getting a pretty bad diaper rash. I mentioned it to Dr. Hottie when we went to see him. He said to put A&D on it and keep her in a clean diaper all the time. It was better for a few days, then it got worse. He calls the house to follow up on something else and I mention the rash to him again. He said to put Neosporin on it. Then coat it with A&D. Just got worse. Now it is bleeding and it is raw. Call and talk to the phone nurse. She tells me to put Lotrimun on it and coat it with A&D. At this point I am thinking I should be buying stock in A&D. I ask the nurse just how bad does it have to be before they want to see her. Her answer....they don't want to see her for a diaper rash. Whatever. Today it was the worst it has ever been. Now she is screaming everytime I touch her bottom when I am cleaning it. That's it. I call the doctor and tell them I NEED to bring my child in for a DIAPER RASH. I knew that something was wrong. I knew I should have brought her in when it first started. Dr. Hottie wasn't available, so we saw another doctor. The first thing she says is...ummmm, it isn't a diaper rash. I KNEW IT! So, now we are on more meds. Dr. H said that we should see an inprovement within the next 48 hours.
As I am typing this, Miss K is sitting in her baby bath tub in a warm water baking soda bath...in front of the television in the living room. She's having her own little party with her ducks. Lots of fun. I just hope that she starts getting better soon. Brian is leaving to go out of town tomorrow morning to play golf for the weekend. So, we are on our own this weekend! Keep your fingers crossed that it goes well!
