Phasmid Posted October 8, 2010 Report Share Posted October 8, 2010 After strep exposure at school and sinus infection, my boy had to go back on 30 days azithromycin and 5 days prednisone (all doc would do because it was too soon to do longer after he was on a 30 prednisone taper). He was doing great overall, including school. Suddenly, pulled eyelashes out again, printing became messy, mixed printing and cursive, mood swing again. Now, he seems like he is slipping into some degree of depression, mainly over how he views his appearance. He is not fat, but not skinny either. He sees himself as fat, says his face is ugly (NOT), and describes details on his body that he thinks are "ugly." The antibiotic/pred burst is not pulling him out of this so far, as it had previously. Question: is the self-critical body stuff common? Is this normal for 12 year old boy? I know this age group is very focused on self and appearance and all that, but he sees nothing good about himself. Is this part of PANDAS or is this something in addition to? Just to remind, he has no tics now, and no real OCD (extremely mild stuff related to his covers at night). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
