Want to know when to take your child to the ER?

Go with your instinct!

Yesterday our daughter was bitten by a mosquito.

Her arm was swollen, hot to the touch and blistered.

I gave her Benedryl & ice compresses and put her to bed.

She woke up 4 hours later, and it had gotten bigger and she was complaining of itchiness.

I called her doctor, and decided to take her to the ER.

My husband thought I was overreacting, my my gut told me to take her there!

We did go, & she did have a bad allergic reaction to a mosquito. The doctor put her on Benedryl, a steroid, & cold compresses for a few days.

The point of this, is that when your gut tells you as a parent to react, go with what you feel!

Take it from a Mom Who Knows!
