you gotta be kiddin'! we got home from vaca, which included some hotel rooms and camping cabins, along with our own tent camping and staying at a relatives. the first morning we were home, I noticed a rash on the back of ds9's left upper arm. it has a demarcated line just above where a short sleeved shirt ends down to his elbow. at first, I wasn't too concerned. he has an allergic reaction to sunscreen. the day before, dh sunscreened him and I thought maybe he mixed them up or something along those lines. since wasn't troublesome to him, I didn't want to freak out about it. I guess other things to deal with too -- new permanent retainer in mouth making him miserable and school starting next week. it has not been itching him but looks terrible. i'm putting a cream on it that it seems to be getting better. but past couple days has been concerning me more. today I see a couple similar bumps on ds11's right arm, but only a few. I start thinking it is bizarre they have it on upper vs. lower arm, right vs. left. so I think -- omg - could it be bed bugs??!! I looked up pics and it does look like ds9's arm. he doesn't seem to be getting anything new. how is this kid the lighting rod for everything??!!! I have nothing and am very reactive to mosquito bites. dh has nothing. anyone know much about bed bugs? another thought -- he is on a new antiparasitic regime -- took 2 weeks and one week off -- the day i first saw the rash, was day 14 -- to be first day off. I wonder if this has anything to do with it. curious b/c the bumps don't itch. I don't really think a reaction to the regime would produce the bumps looking just like the bites though ---- ???
