It Wasn't An Allergy penicillin thank goodness! After that horrible rash kept getting worse and worse, I finally took her back in to her primary care physician (I had been going to InstaCare because their schedule is more flexible - I'm not knocking InstaCare though, for sure!) and she took a good long look at the rash.

Turns out some children break out in horrible rashes all over their bodies as they are recovering from a viral infection! I had no idea! She said some of the cardinal signs are bumps presenting on the palms of hands and the bottoms of feet! Tink surely has them EVERYWHERE, poor girl!

So, there's basically not anything they can do for it besides wait it out. She said it's not very uncomfortable and Tink doesn't appear to be in any distress. The doc said it would take care of itself over the next couple of weeks which would be totally okay if her birthday party isn't scheduled for 2 weeks from today and I'd prefer that she didn't look like she's got chicken pox on a day notorious for being one of the biggest picture days of a child's life.
