    On Saturday night my 11 month old had her first temperature.
    It peacked at 37.9 the next day
    She was floppy, unsettled and went off her food.

    By Monday she was fine and hadnt had a temp in over 12 hrs. (we had done the every 2 hrs calpol alternating with ibroprphen thing)

    Today (wednesday) evening time she got a temp of 37.7 and is all sleepy and unsettled again with a cough.


    I didnt think itd come back :( is this normal ? :(

    xxxx



    p.s

    she has a rash on her....has had for months "eczema" theyve said but the cream and bath stuff weve got doesnt touch it
    its much worse atm and there are puss-filled bite-like spots on her leg arms and stomach. theyre like blisters or pimples

    could it be measles? its going round atm i know that but now 2 drs have said its just eczema but the spots really arent i dont think


    :(

    hey hun, sorry don't have any advice but hope she feels better soon - if you're really worried about her rash I'd either call the out of hours GP or go to A&E! Better to be safe than sorry.

    I didn't think anything under 39c is much to worry about unless It lasts more than 24hrs. Not sure about the rash though, I would definitely get that checked out. Hope she's gets better soon.

    I think you should take her to be seen today. That's not eczema, those pus-filled bumps. Good luck, hun. x

    well all I can say about Eczema is I've had it since I was born (and I ahd it really bad as a baby/toddler) and it's never ever been puss filled spots... but I'm not sure if there's more extreme versions?

    yeah apparently dairy can trigger ezcema... I was told when I was little to avoid red, yellow and orange foods! Didn't listen though lol

    Have you phoned up the NHS direct and described the rash to them?
