Post IVIg 3.5 weeks
Posted 14 July 2012 - 07:51 AM
I know there can be reactions to IVIg, but I just didn't realize it would be to this extent. I am glad this is during the summer months because kids at school could be really cruel about this. Dr. B used Gammagard at 2.0 mg/kg where Dr. K used Gammunex at 1.5 mg/kg.
So far, no behavioral healing but the red cheeks are gone and the fluid in his ears is greatly reduced. Watch and wait is very hard!

My DD has peeling skin on her hands, kind of bubbles then peels. Not painful or itchy. Didn't give it much thought until the other day. Dt T sent me an article this week about Coxsakie, some of his patients are turning up with it. My DD has had 2 episodes of Pancreatitis and this article made a link to coxsakie so he wanted her tested. Results will be in Monday.
Dr. B tested for that but it came up negative. Could it be that his nose is peeling because the intracellular strep is gone? Just like when the hands and feet peel, the nose could peel? It is only his nose and right around it, including the upper lip. The inside of the nostril is where Dr. B found the infection.
