Well, he we r celebrating being done with our 7th month off topical steroids, to be hit by a mack truck full of a bacterial and yeast infection all over his feet and ankle. The poor baby can't walk and is in so much pain, I'd say a 10, and this kid can take a lot of pain. It is so sad to not only see him flare but on top of that see him suffering so much for the infections. So frustrating and sad.....we are at our wits end! How much more can we take?
The infection is so different from the red skin.....his feet are oozing yellow and blood and smell like rotten skin. The holes in his feet are huge and the doctor said it felt like a very bad burn. I hope he heals quickly on the meds and thankfully the codeine is helping him sleep a little.
I'll keep you posted on my brave little man.
Also, if you could click on the mommy's blog voting ( top left of blog) that would be awesome...my blog got accepted on their site but I need people to click on the link to keep it active. I am hoping this will be another way to bring more awareness to topical steroid addiction. Thank you so much and keep Kline in your thoughts! Xoxoxooxo
One fed up mama!
