Rash activity

Chloë has had a rash the past couple of days. "Ringworm," Eric said, looking at the round red rings. We didn't worry overly much about it; ringworm is harmless. When it didn't go away, we put some antifungal cream on it. Those patches went away, but in the meantime it spread. A lot. Last night we gooped her up with the cream all over and sent her to bed.

This morning she woke up and the spots we'd gotten were gone, but new ones had sprung up everywhere. "Not ringworm," Eric said. "Ringworm doesn't show up or go away this fast." So he's going to put in a call to the doctor. In the meantime, if it's not ringworm we've probably spread it all over her body by applying the apparently useless cream. Poor kid.
