Hello, Earlier in the week (wed) my grandson started breaking out with little bumps on his face. That same day his daycare provider started placing sunblock on all the kids. The day before that (tue) he came home with a high temperature, which we thought was from being over heated while playing outside (the temperature outside was 90 degrees and he was running around on the playground when I picked him up. I treated him by removing his tshirt and giving him plenty of cool water. After 15 minutes of him saying he still didn t feel well I took his temperature which read 101.3. I followed up with a cold towel and removed his socks. the temperature dropped and he was back to a normal 5 year old boy running and jumping around. Days later he still has the pumps and the daycare provider informed me that several of the kids have the bumps and we assumed it was the large cheap bottle of sunscreen. Today (saturday) he woke up with a little stuffy nose but still acted fine and played in his baseball game and play date with neighbor just fine. Now about an hour and half ago the fever returned with running nose and he no longer wants to play with his cousin that came over. He is pretty lethargic and only wanting to lay down and sleep. This is VERY much out of his go go go character. I gave him V-C and Hyland s complete cold N flu for kids formula . It has never caused him to be drowsy before. There are no white bumps in his mouth NOR are the small bumps on his face red. what else can I look up to what this might be? The bumps came days before the symptoms.
