Walking Pneumonia and Diabetes

Posted on November 9, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes Firsts |

OK, I feel like a bad mom!

I’m the type of mom that does not immediately assume the worst. When Josh broke his wrist snow boarding a few years ago it took me two weeks to take him to the orthopaedist (but in my defense he said it didn’t hurt that bad and he even did a push up to show me!).

And I can get amazing results with over the counter medicines.

So last night when Josh complained that his ear hurt a little I didn;t think much of it. I just put a warm compress on his ear.

When in to tuck him in, though, he had this weird hive type rash.

Weird Rash!

Yuck- huh? It was even more yuck in the morning!

So, we head off to the pediatrician (who I love because he always gets us right in!). Dr. Yu takes one look and says “Walking Pneumonia- classic symptoms”

Who would of thought that this rash was a classic symptom of walking pneumonia? Apparently it is called erythema multiforme.

So, you learn something new everyday! Don’t assume a rash is due to an allergic reaction if it is accompanied with a cough and a sore ear.

This medical information brought to you by one bad mom!

You can always manage Diabetes by proper diet and nutrition. Food supplements also help slow down some of the side effects of high blood sugar.
