Strep? Scarlet fever?

My almost two year old has this rash on every inch of his little body. I took him to the doctor yesterday and she said it might be strep or scarlet fever but his rapid stress test came back negative so I’m freaking out that he’s not being treated correctly. She put him on amox but I’m wondering if I should take him to an urgent care tomorrow for a second opinion. What do you guys think?

Trouble at childcare

My almost two year old comes to work with me at a childcare in a gym and recently he has started hurting other kids (pushing, hitting, kicking etc.) He’s always been such a sweet little boy and so kind to others but recently that’s changed.

I have an 18 month old that I’ve been trying to wean for weeks. He won’t take a bottle and screams for hours when I don’t let him breastfeed. I’m starting to lose my mind.

Tips on weaning

My one and a half year old son is impossible to wean. He can’t fall asleep on his own and has to breastfeed to get to sleep. I’ve tried not giving it to him and laying down with him, rubbing his back or tummy. He screams and screams until he gets it. Last time he screamed for three hours until I finally gave it to him and he went right to sleep. I’m a single mom so dad can’t try putting him to ... More
