Scarlet Fever

It has been a while since I have posted anything new so lets just go with the latest thing, Scarlet Fever. So Friday night Hudson started to get a small rash all over his body. Later that evening the rash got bigger and brighter. We thought it was a viral rash but as the rash got worse we took him into the doc ad they said he had scarlet fever. Back in the day children used to die from this. So naturally I freaked so what do I do? Get on the internet. I find out all it is is group A strep. It looks so much worse than it is. Antibiotics have started to clear it up in only 3 days. With my fingers crossed nobody else will get it. And so far it has worked. So here are some pictures of the poor little man while the rash was at its worse.
