Got a second medical opinion because, on top of her eye swelling up again, large angry patches appeared on her leg. The first diagnosis of hives came from Sophia’s regular pediatrician. This time, we went to the family doctor that I have been going to since I was a child because he also has a special interest in dermatology although he is not a dermatologist. His opinion is that it is some sort of insect bite. So now who should we believe and what should we do about the rashes, blisters and all??
Btw, the husband, who claims to be the expert in hives having suffered through it for more than 30 years, opined that it is hives as hives tend to be clustered around one area and not in such disparate places as head and ankle. Who am I to know?
