Glen brought Liam to see the N.P this morning because he has these little bumps on his arm.
They didn't look like warts or moles so naturally I was concerned.
She says that she thinks they are something called Molluscum Contagiosum which is a skin rash caused by a virus that was first described in 1817. The virus is a member of the Pox virus family. It is common worldwide and accounts for about 1% of all skin disorders in the United States. It primarily affects children (boys more often than girls) and young adults. The incidence of molluscum contagiosum is increasing.
I also found this site if you are interested.
He has an appointment to get them burned off on the 29th at 845 am. Luckily its a PA day so if he is uncomfortable, I can help him manage the pain.
This is so weird. I had hoped it was nothing but a rash.. but yea.. Its not that horrible but anything that affects my kids freaks me out.. as you know.
Liam is not bothered by it, he says they are not itchy or anything so at least i have that to keep me happy for now.
Helyn is still not pooping regularly... we were doing good for the first week on lactulose and now it doesn't help at all. Glen brought it up with the N.P. and she is going to get back to us and refer us to a pediatrician
