There are many firsts a baby has. There are the happy firsts (smile, first laugh, first tooth, first steps) and the sad firsts (mostly illness). Today we had a sad first...an allergic reaction. To what we have no idea. It doesn't seem to be a food allergy as he hasn't had anything new in the last few days. Except animal crackers, but those that have anything that he hasn't had in something else. No new detergents, soaps, etc. either.
The doctor is thinking environmental, but more like indoor environmental than outdoor as he hasn't been exposed to anything new outside. Well inside either for that matter. It all started with playtime with daddy. Hmm...hopefully it's not an allergy to playtime with daddy! I am thinking something in the rug perhaps, unless daddy brought something home with him from work.
Luckily the hives that RC has are not itchy. That would really make him miserable. Instead there are just quite a few. On his face, arms, torso, back, and legs. Hopefully the medicine the doctor prescribed will kick in fast. Hopefully we will find what triggered the reaction, though we may never know. For now, my poor boy looks uncomfortable. I am so thankful though that he is not so he doesn't have to suffer through it.
