Rashes

Yesterday evening when I was cleaning up Sarah, I noticed there are some rashes on her body. Since this is not the first time I see these rashes, therefore I just applied some cream on it and normally it will disappear the next day.

When I checked on her body again this morning, I saw more rashes on her body now. Not only on the body but many more on her head, hands, neck, face and back. So we decided to bring her to visited pead.

According to the paed, the rashes are caused by viral illness. Since Sarah has fever, it is not abnormal she will get this kind of rashes out-break sometimes, and there is nothing much to worry about. We were glad that these rashes didn’t cause itchiness.

The paed has given us some Calamine cream to be applied on the rashes. Besides that, she also noticed Sarah has redness in the throat (luckily did not affect her appetite), so she has to consume the flu medicine as well.

I really hope she will feeling better tomorrow.

Normally, after a fever gone, there will be rashes. But the rashes are not "raised" type whereby u can feel right? Cos Philip got and its called Roseola. http://www.babycenter.com/0_roseola_1616.bc

It is a good news.

Furthermore when I google n read in Dr Sears, those who get this type of rashes..will be "tougher" babies wor..

Joanne, is that a Roseola that Sarah is catching, or is it from the MMR injection? Poor Sarah ..... hope that she will get well soon. Glad that at least her fever and rashes did not affect her appetite.

Just read ur post Joanne. Poor Sarah.. How is she today? Ashton had Roseola few months back. According to his paed, after 3 days of fever, the rashes will come out. Is tat d case wid Sarah?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Thanks for your concern. Sarah is getting so much better.
- Ashton also get roseola b4 ya? Pity him..
Yes, that was what the paed told me that the rashes came after the fever.

Esmeralda said...

Good to hear that Sarah is getting better. So is she having Roseola or just rashes? This Roseola is also called "jia ma AKA fake measle" in Chinese, so it's better for him to get it when he's young.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Erm..somehow I also got confuse with roseola and rashes. Because I know about Roseola from my blogging frens, so those symptoms that they mentioned (that Sarah was having) was like Roseola.

Yes, some of them said is call jia ma in mandarin.

poor Sarah, glad to know she is getting much better

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks again for your concern mommy Gwen. Yes, I feel so heart sick watching her so tired when she got the rashes.

Esmeralda said...

So how's Sarah's rashes now? Subsided already? I dunno u believe in Chinese physician or not, but this is what I did with Ashton. I brought him to one of the Chinese physicians here to hv a look at his "jia ma" a.k.a. Roseola, and they confirmed that. She gave us some Chinese herbs to bath Ashton with (that will make the rashes come out more, but faster, so that Ashton will not be so "sing ku") coz if he has this "jia ma", he can't blow wind, etc.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Sarah has recovered from the Roseola. Thanks for your concern.
-Yeap, I do believe in Chinese Physician. Hehe..as long as the medicine works for Sarah...
- Infact I did asked my husband to buy a packet of chinese herbs for Sarah bathing. But at that time, Sarah was almost recovered from the jia ma, so cant really see the rashes come out more..

Esmeralda said...

OK. As long as Sarah is well, no problem.. I hope she's back to her original happy and jovial self again..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Yes, now she is active as usual. Thanks ya!
