Ellie developed a cold 2.5 weeks ago and a viral skin rash 2 weeks ago. We took her to the doctor on Monday 10th Jan and he confirmed that it wasn't anything to worry about. He said the virus would clear in 5-10 days.
But 2 weeks from developing the rash, her cold is long gone but the rash is still just as bad.
How long can I expect it to last, and should I be making another doctors appointment?
We do the glass test day and night, just in case, and it always disappears so not overly worried. Just expected the rash to go along with the cold really!
I know it was more upsetting for me than for him. I cried on the bus to work on the first day! And I've felt awful this week as I'm off sick (Sinusitis, agony I tell thee!) but I've still sent him in but on Monday and today (he's at home with DH on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) the grins when I collected him told me he has fun.
And a good thing about nursery, totally knackers him out! He's asleep by 7pm and only wakes once (mostly because he doesn't take his bedtime bottle!).
