Thank you, everyone, for the very kind comments and good thoughts for Ryan. The rash had spread considerably by the time we got to the doctor’s office, but with Benadryl it nearly disappeared within 15 minutes. There’s no clear verdict on the cause. Could be the peanut butter, could be the kiwi, OR it could be a rash from the amoxicillin he was on for the previous week’s ear infection, OR a rash from his recent MMR vaccine. We’re hoping it’s one of the latter, and will try both kiwi and peanut better again in a few months. Whatever it was, he was cheerful and didn’t seem the least bit uncomfortable during the entire ordeal. My little trooper!
Now, off to baby’s first haircut once he wakes from his morning nap!
