My 7 year old wasn't feeling quite himself last week. He was feverish on and off for a few days and was more tired than usual. We took him in to see the doctor on Friday and sure enough he has a blood infection.
As well as having asthma and multiple food and environmental allergies, he also has eczema and he was born with only one kidney.
The doctor thinks that his most recent eczema flare up may have caused the blood infection. What do you think?
He's now on antibiotics for 7 days and needs to stay out of the sun while he takes the antibiotics because the medication makes him sensitive to the sun.

Wow that's scary! So glad you caught and that he's on treatment.

Eczema would be an easy route for the infection to enter the blood stream, so you're Dr is probably right.

I hope the infection didn't harm his kidney.
