Choose your malady

Last night I dropped the Hubs, Mister, and Sister off at my Aunts house while I attended a meeting for the Family Ministry department at church.  When I went to pick them up, Mister had developed a rash.  Initially I thought he’d had an allergic reaction to a blanket at my Aunt’s house.   I gave him some Benadryl and when we got home, put him to bed (since it was after 11 p.m.)

This morning, I am not so sure.

So, let’s backtrack a moment.
On Wednesday,  I put flannel sheets on his bed when I changed his sheets.  He got up from his nap, had a low grade fever, and vomited.  Since he was perfectly fine within fifteen minutes, I thought he overheated with the flannel sheets (since he can’t sweat) and didn’t think anymore of it.
Thursday he was fine.  We went to MomsClub and had a blast.
Then last night the rash.

I called the pediatrician’s office and spoke with the nurse,  and according to her  it could be

A) chicken pox;
B) hand-foot-mouth disease; or
C) an allergic reaction as originally thought.
Helpful.  Real helpful.
Of course, since it *could* be chicken pox, the doctor’s office does not want me to bring him in, less we expose all the other children.  Mind you, he has had the chicken pox vaccine.
So, I called my Mom to come over and look at them.
What do you think?
