My daughter developed a crazy rash last night, we went to a new pediatrician today(hate him already)...she has 5th disease & is very itchy. I went to fill the prescription the doctor wrote for her & they don't make it in that dose anymore so the pharmacist can't do anything until tomorrow until he talks to our new quack doctor ;). We tried putting hydrocortisone cream on her but it burned & she cried for 30 minutes...it did help but I can't let her suffer through the intense burning just to get some relief. So now we are on to children's benadryl(oral) and I don't remember the dose for her weight (since it doesn't recommend giving to children under 4 years old. & it's been a while since we've had to give it to her). She'll be 4 April 6th & weighs 38 pounds. We are about to give her an oatmeal bath as well. So, if anyone knows the dosage please let me know. My princess needs some rest & relief as she got none of either last night.
