Poor Niall woke up with an awful runny nose and, worse, an itchy rash over much of body. Yikes! All over his hands, arms, legs, feet, lower back, shoulders. Seems to have skipped his face, chest and most of his back, but that's the only saving grace. He is handling it remarkably well, but it's no fun.
I dosed him up with Benedryl and put hydrocortisone cream on the worst of the itchies, and we'll see how it goes. I expect it's a virus. He hasn't had anything new to eat, no new clothes or laundry detergent, hasn't been roaming around in any strange bushes, and definitely no visits to foreign countries. Definitely not chicken pox (although I know it sounds like it). Think he'll just have to wait it out.
