for an unscheduled visit to the Dr. Yup, you read that right. Lillian had her first visit to the Dr. that wasn't for a well visit or for shots. In fact I think she was confused when we left there without getting poked with 4 needles. For the past few weeks the girl has had a pretty bad diapie rash. Now I really didn't think too much of it since she does get rashes easily when she is getting teeth etc. But this one was different. It lasted FOREVER and despite my best attempts at max strength cream, frequent diaper changed, soda bathes and TONS of nakie time it was just getting worse. So we went in. The girl has a yeast infection. Poor thing. No wonder she's been sleeping like crap lately. She's been itchy and burning and sore and it probably wakes her up at night.
So we get to put athletes foot cream on her bottom. For some reason I find that amusing even though it's really not.
One night of cream and she already looked better this morning. And the doctor told us the signs and said it was fine to go ahead and buy over the counter and treat if it happens again. I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come for when she's an adult.
