Since October 4th My daughter has been sick. She started out having a red blotchy rash on her face. We took her to Emerg because she had a fever for 3 days. She ended up with a ear infection and got prescribed antibiotics for the ear infection. She reacted (what I thought she reacted, but the Dr said it was just a coincedence from the fever breaking) her face was all red and very puffy under her eyes. The next day she broke out all over her body in red bumps. (Reseola - Baby Measles). But now I am starting to really wonder if it was ever the measles. She has woken up yesterday and today with that bad rash on her face again. Today her face is quite puffy esp under her left eye. She is having trouble opening it wide. I have booked a Dr appt again but can't get in until Thursday. Since she has been sick I havent been able to breastfeed her as she just screams, so I've been giving her more milk. Could she possibly be having a allergic reaction to the milk? Seems her rash is looking more like an allergic reaction, as measles should not still be showing after two weeks! Need some advices Momma's!
