Yesterday morning , Riley started to get some splotchy patches on her face. A little weird, but nothing too concerning. Then by the afternoon it was worse... much worse. It had also spread a little to her body and hands. Then this morning? Oh my goodness she looked awful. She had a horrible rash all over her body, and if she wasn't in her usual happy mood I would have probably rushed her to the emergency room. No seriously. We did try and take her to the doctor, but our insurance is still getting all worked out since we just moved into the country, so we didn't really know who to go see or who would take us. We did end up taking her to see a nurse who made sure Riley wasn't in need of urgent care (she wasn't), and who suggested that Riley most likely was suffering from an allergic reaction the the penicillin. Which apparently, can look like this:
It is honestly the saddest little sight you've ever seen. She is so red and splotchy, I just want to make her better! It should (fingers crossed) go away on its own in the next 3-5 days, and I'm hoping it's not going to get any worse before it gets better!
