My 20 month old daughter has very rarely gotten 'doctor worthy' sick until this month... She has had an ear infection, a regular resperatory cold, the stomach flu, and now it looks like the start to another ear infection... ALL IN 3 1/2 weeks!!!!!! Well now while she's sleeping, she's scratching at her ears, scalp, chest, and back of her neck until they bleed (no bugs and she's already on claritin for allergies). And has started grinding her teeth so loud we can hear it across the room. It's killing me because she has always been such laid back, happy child and now it looks like she's showing signs of chronic stress or hypertension (yes, I'm a psych major, so those areas are always on my mind)... Have any of you experienced these behaviors during a child's illness and did they go away????
