It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

My Poor Little Man

Kyle is, to quote him, "Itchy Itchy Itchy" and I wonder why. Check out his rash.It is all over his torso, arms, neck, and some on his face.

The doc yesterday said he thinks it is something called pityriasis. It could last for a couple of months. Yuck. It is aparently caused by a virus. (but is not contagious) So how did he get it then? i wonder.Anyway we are treating the rash topically with steroid cream and he is taking a double dose of Claritin in the morning and a dose of Benadryl at night. Hopefully that will at least ease the itchiness.

Poor baby! Does the doc think an oatmeal bath will help? My MIL uses Baking Soda baths when that kind of stuff happens to her, and it worked great on Emmy. Hope he gets better soon!
