Measles Alert in the Blue Mountains

Ugh! That's enough to make any mother of an 11 month old with a rash panic. Fortunately a) A's rash looks nothing like the pictures I can find of measles b) it seems to be fading a little and c) it started on his trunk and spread to under his arms, groin and now behind his knees. Still, the fear is quite pervasive. Must stop consulting Dr. Google and just take him to a real doctor tomorrow (scarlet fever is my current diagnosis, eek!)

of course the doctor is in order, but just so's you know, babies get "viral rashes" all the time. or at least mine did. i would get a cold, they would get a rash. weird but true.
here's hoping that's all it is!
