    Can you describe Harleys rash please?

    Coby got a rash yesterday in his front and back, the doc said its a virual thing and would go by today,

    but today its spread to his arms and legs, i just read the same has happened to Harley too so wanted to compare if thats ok.

    Hiya

    its like heat lumps raised dark red spots and loads under his skin too

    they started on his belly but now he has a few behind his ears on his face and on his back.

    Harley had his mmr 10days ago and i read that on the 10th day they can get a measle like rash so i think its what he has Dr is checking him over later for me

    i took a pic last night to ask my friend but cant see them to clear (my cam is crap) - they are alot redder then the pic and they have spread

    when he wakes i will try get another pic.

    is Coby well in himself? or has he been poorly recently?
    some times after they have been poorly they can get a rash did you get antibiotics for him?

    Harley has a temp too so am giving him medinol to keep it down

    Coby was ill for 2 days before the rash came out, had a temp of 101 to 103 and had to sponge him down over night, was very grumpy.

    Since the rash has come out he hasnt had a temp, he seems ok in himself now, but he does seem more tired than normal.

    The doc didnt give me anything for him, he just said it would go in its own but it seems to be spreading.

    It does look simlar to Cobys but his rash is under his skin more, i dont think he has any raised ones, he is asleep now but when he wakes up i will check and try to get a pic.

    Thanks

    Dior got a viral rash once a few days after she was poorly it went with in 24hrs though.

    i think Drs fob every thing off with "viral rash"

    hope our boys are better soon, i have work tomorrow i have already had 3 days off, im going to get in trouble!!

    Harleys face looks strange though he has loads of them under his eyes :S
    its his sisters dummy:blush:

    Harley has less spots but harleys look bigger.

    when Dior had a viral rash before they looked more joined up then Coby's

    they do disapear when you press them dont they.

    if he had measles he would have a temp and probably a cough too
    if its chicken pox they start to get yellow heads on them and are behind the ears too.

    if the Dr said they would be gone by now maybe you should just give the nhs a call?

    he might need antibiotics

    yeah they do dissapear when i press them, my first thought was chicken pox if im honest coz they came out after his temp went which is what normaly happends but the doc said no, and they havent got the yellow heads on them so i guess they cant be.

    I think if they get worse by tonight i will take him to teh doc on call, no point in taking him back to my doc coz he wont do anything

    im not sure what measles looks like - but the Dr will understand if you want a 2nd opinion seems your pregnant.

    just see how he goes for now

    poor thing atleast he is asleep at the mo - best thing for them is to sleep through it

    • About a week to 10 days after the MMR immunisation some children become feverish and they may develop a measles-like rash and go off their food. This is because the measles part of the vaccine is starting to work.
    • About three to four weeks after the injection a child might occasionally get a mild form of mumps as the mumps part of MMR kicks in.
    • In the six weeks after MMR your child may, very rarely, get a rash of small bruise-like spots which may be caused by the measles or rubella parts of the immunisation. This usually gets better on its own.
    • Very rarely, children can have severe allergic reactions straight after any immunisation (about 1 in 100,000 immunisations for MMR). If the child is treated quickly, he or she will recover fully. People giving immunisations are trained to deal with allergic reactions.
    • Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a bleeding disorder, has long been a recognised side-effect of live viral vaccines such as measles, rubella and MMR. A study by researchers from the Public Health Laboratory Service (published in Archives of Diseases in Childhood, February 2001) confirms earlier estimates that the rate of ITP after MMR is around 1 in 22,300. It is important to remember that the rate of ITP after natural viral illness is much higher (at about 1 in 3,000 for rubella and 1 in 6,000 for measles) and that the severity of illness in non-vaccine related ITP cases is much greater. Therefore MMR offers protection against this higher risk of ITP due to the natural disease, as well as the other known serious complications of measles, mumps and rubella.
    You prob read all this Dionne but thought it may help

    thanks Imi
    the first one on the list is what i think he has it was 10days ago yesterday when he had his mmr.

    just wished the Dr was more interested as if its just a rash from his mmr he wont need antibiotics,
    he also has the worlds worse diareah, its like water and orange,
    i have 2 nappies to last me untill kris gets home, :dohh:

    Dior has no choice but to use the loo all day lol

    After immunisation some children may get a very mild form of measles with a rash (about 1 in 10), a fever (about 1 in 15), loss of appetite and a general feeling of being unwell for 2 or 3 days.
    More rarely a child (1 in 50) can develop a mild form of mumps with swelling of the glands in the cheek, neck or under the jaw about 3 weeks after being immunised. This only lasts a day or two.


    Is there anyway the poor lil mite got full blown measles????
