My DS was diagnoised on Mon with Impetigo. Dr. said we caught in time before it spread too far. Its all around his nose, and now is spreading around his mouth. I think by his soother, its all around his lips, Im worried its gonna go in his mouth, but if we take the soother away he crys.

Now he wont eat, & takes VERY LITTLE bottle. Has thrown up twice today. (My DH was shocked how far it shoots!) What do I do. Dr. said to just give it time. Im trying the pedialyte and freezes. One minute he seems to be fine, the next he's all cuddly & throwing up. He wakes at night, and just stirs around, not interested in food at all (very very unusual for him) This is the 1st time he's been sick (11mth old) Any suggestions. I feel so helpless. How do I get thro this??

Tylenol is given every 4 hrs, but he just keeps throwing it up.? what good does that do? Im trying to keep soother away, to stop spread, but he just crys. Any suggestions. PLEASE HELP!
