    Got up with him this morning and he has a few lumpy bits on his head, just left it.
    Started to bath him to get him ready for my nephews party and noticed he had a blister on his head, ike a burns blister :? Thoght he just had a spot and carried on, went to get myself showered while Andy was watching the kids and when i came down i noticed he had another 4 :shock:

    Huge lumps that look like like they are filled with puss :sick:

    then wiped his face and noticed they were on his neck and near his ears- i knew straight away they were not chicken pox as they weren't spots with heads on they were puss filled lumps. :(

    Got him in to the 24 hr em docs and they said it is MOLOSCUM :(

    Apparently it is a form of warts that comes up when they have had a viral infection, they are contagious if touched and if you bath him with someone else I.e Amy :roll: but not carried in the air- he had croup a few weeks back so they reckon that triggered it

    They look awful :( they can last for 9 months to so he has these horrible lumps on his head- poor mite he has about 10 now

    i feel really dirty now- i know it is not caused by that and we are not dirty, but when i looked it up on the net most of the pages said it was an STD and a form of genital warts :shock:

    It is a different type but it just sounds so dirty and horrible, they don't look great either :(

    Aww Yvonne, don't feel like that hun. Most warts are caused by the same virus, I mean I get coldsores occasionally and that is a form of herpes, just a different type.

    Hope Jack gets better soon, big hugs xx

    Awwww, poor little love. :(

    The good thing is that he isn't old enough for school and ridicule from other kids yet Yvonne. They'll be long gone by then.

    He got nothing for them, he woke up this morning and he is covered in spots from head to toe, he isn't eating very much at all.

    Poor mite, they are on his face now to, they are coming out and covering him like chicken pox but they are alot bigger spots.
