Nicholas was at the end of his prescription -- I had finally taken down my guard -- I thought that finally there was an antibiotic that he could tolerate. But it was not meant to be. Last night at dinnertime I noticed a light rash on him. This morning, it was full blown. So off to the emergency room we went. When we arrived, he was the only patient there, and, it was quiet. The NP (nurse practitioner) looked at him right away, and, she said -- this medicine is now off limits to him. Another one bites the dust. At least the medicine got rid of the swelling from his pilonodial cyst.
This afternoon, he's staying inside with the air conditioning. That's okay -- it's thundering out there right now anyway.
We checked with the pharmacist and the rash should subside in a couple of days.
