In case you were wondering, it wasn't an allergic reaction to Zithromax. They ALSO both have Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. They both responded to the antibiotics: their throats got better and Sam was a million times better this morning after his shot.
HF&M Disease is a virus so as I am sure you know, there isn't anything we can do for it really except wait it out. The steroid cream Dr C prescribed isn't working on it, and now Sam has the rash, too. So for that, we wait and do Motrin. *Sigh* At least the fevers, sore throats, vomiting, and diarrhea are gone. All we are left with is nasty looking sore hands, feet and mouths. Which I should have known...didn't I describe the symptoms exactly? Good thing I am not the doctor. Wish Ben had been home to diagnose them when the rashes really hit fully. When he saw it, it wasn't as bad and it was mostly on Jack's hands, but today when he came home to sleep and took a look, he confirmed. And DUH to me, I took them to church last Sunday and they were sanitizing hands because HF&M had been going around. Monday night is when symptoms started. This is what their hands and mouths look like almost exactly. Their feet aren't as bad as these pictures.
Anyway, I did find a way to get out myself and get the prescription and Motrin I needed. We had a long night last night, but they were almost completely back to their normal selves this morning, terrorizing each other and running around the house fighting "bad guys." I think we are through the worst. I managed alright. :)
