Healing {A quick update}

August 11, 2013

I thought, I would give you guys a quick update on how Little One is doing after having to deal with all her health issues.

If you remember about a month ago she suffered from something called molluscum contagiousum and hubby took her to the dermatologist to have her treated. The treatment was worse than the actual virus and I still wish we would have just let it be.

But her legs are all healed up and she only has little white spots left that should go away with time.

8-11 healed legs2

I’m actually quite surprised her “scars” are not worse, especially after she also had to deal with a terrible, itchy rash caused by what the doctor at first thought was fifth disease but turned out to be coxsackie virus. She scratched herself raw and bloody at night while she suffered from it. Not a pretty sight.

8-11 healed legs

I’m happy that she hasn’t suffered any more ill effects from all this.

She truly enjoyed her last two weeks in camp and was able to partake in all activities.

So, all’s well that ends well.

Wishing you all a great week!

xo, Susi

    Livie had this as well, also behind the back her legs and some on her stomach. It was horrible because the itching drove her crazy! Her pediatrician told us not to worry about it and that it would go away within the year (which it did). The back of her legs are still discolored, although applying coconut oil has helped IMMENSELY. I highly recommend it – instead of using lotion. It’s amazing how healing it ended up being.

    Glad to hear that everything ended up being OK. Ugh about getting coxsackie at the worse possible time!

      Michelle, our pediatrician said it would go away on its own as well. But the nurse at camp gave me a lot of grief about it and we decided to take her to a dermatologist. And this is what happened. Thanks for the tip about the coconut oil, I’ll try that.

    Hi Susi!
    It is so good to hear that your little princess is feeling and looking a lot better now.
    What a nasty looking illness she suffered 🙁
    I am glad she got to partake in camp, I hope she had loads of fun!!

      Kerry, she did have a ton of fun at camp and she was not happy to miss so much time away. So she made the most of her last two weeks. 🙂

    Poor thing. Good to know she’s on the mend.

    • Susi August 13, 2013 at 11:14 am

      It sure is. Looking at her now makes me feel a bit better about what we put her through…

    Ugh. Glad to hear it all cleared up. We dealt with the molluscum a few years back. No fun at all! Glad she’s on the mend!

    • Susi August 13, 2013 at 11:15 am

      Thanks, Kerry. It seems more and more common. My son had it when he was little and it was nothing compared to what our little girl went through.

    Wow, that is one brave girl!

    There is nothing worse than seeing your child in pain. Glad she’s on the mend!!

      Thanks, Erica. It was a pretty tough couple weeks there but she was a trooper!

    glad to hear Little One is feeling better and back to regular fun!
    It’s hard to watch them suffer — especially with something that itches like crazy. how do you tell someone Not to scratch, when they are clearly itchy? That’s us right now: mosquito bites and poison ivy.
    I feel like a bad mom for not passing on my superpower gene of immunity 🙁

      It’s tough, especially when they do it in their sleep. Little One scratched herself raw in the middle of the night.
