I still have questions...

My mother is home. (YAY!)
BUT! What they have said about this leaves me with more questions...
They say she had a staph infection. I've been reading up on it, and I can't find anywhere that says that a mosquito bite can cause this. So maybe it wasn't a mosquito?
I don't know.
Here is the kicker-today I'm bringing Little Man to his doctor's office. He has developed these little bumps that LOOK like mosquito bites on his back (but under his diaper area, can you picture where I'm saying? I took a picture but it shows his ass and I don't think I want to post his ass here.) and they hurt to the touch. Now I'm shitting myself because if he has this same infection, there will be hospitalization. I'm not afraid of hospitals, I'm just afraid of anything happening to my son.
So I will be leaving my office at noon to go and bring my baby in and hopefully it isn't anything serious, and if it is, well, wish us well. Pray for us. Do a rain dance. Anything. He is my life.

I hope everything is ok!!
Maybe it is heat rash?

You know that the bacteria that causes staph lives everywhere, even on our skin. If your mom even scratched a little, she may have introduced the bacteria into the open mosquito bite. I only say this because years ago, I was hospitalized for a staph infection that I got from a single Chicken Pox under my arm. Because I scratched it!
I'm sorry to hear about your baby. It's worth seeing the doctor. You'll be in my prayers!

Thank you guys. Tuesday- I hope it's a heat rash, but it doesn't look like one. They look like mosquito bites, but with a little puss in them-which is why I called the doc. Puss? Hello! Doctor!
Erin- I see what you're saying. Now I see how it could have been from the bite...

Diana,
Keeping my fingers crossed for you and Little Man. I know what you are saying about worrying about our little ones. I am so like that. It seems like my mind just off and wonders to the worst case scenerio all the time.

But try not to let that happen to you....at least don't until you know there is something to really get worked up about.

Let us know.

Well, I guess I don't need to explain it since Erin has (as always) done a fine job of explaining it.

I'm with tuesday girl in thinking that it is a rash... but erin is right (once again) in saying that getting it checked out is probably the best thing. If nothing else, than to calm your fears.
