My daughter is 4 1/2. She was recently diagnosed as having chicken pox....After several days, she was rediagnosed as having a staph infection that did not require antibiotics but we have to bathe here in a iodine betazine solution.
question....with the info provided, how long will the condition last and do you know exactly what she has.
she has no temperature, and seems no signs of being sick. we are currently into the third week of these bumps (red with a white dot in the middle).
Doesn't make sense, Todd: it's lasted too long to be either chickenpox or a staph infection. It may be prickly heat or some other, probably nonserious condition, but I would ask your doctor to have another look, or else consult a skin doctor for another opinion.
