Creeping Eruption or cutaneous larvae migrans, Anyone know anything about this condition?
My son developed this strange rash sort of thing on his foot that ITCHED him SO SO bad. I took him to the Dr. because it looked infected to me. They told me it was mesquito bites. But I have never seen mesquitos do this type of damage to a child. This sort of looks like ringworm but it doesnt ever go in a circle. it starts itching, he scratches and the next thing you know he has these little squiggily lines coming from the bump he was scratching. The lines look almost like whelps and are hard to the touch. Then they turn into "blisters" sort of. Long story short.. the dr. gave him antibiotics becasue they agreed that it looked infected. Septra was the one they gave him. 2 weeks worth 2 teaspoons 2 times a day. He take all of this medicine and still it looks the same. He finished his meds and 2 days later he develops an extremly high fever. 104 degrees!!! I fought the fever for 2 days before taking him to the ER.
When i took him the ER, the DR. mentioned MRSA but didnt elaborate anymore than, It looks like a staph infection on top of him having the Creeping Eruption. They gave him an IV and ran fluids just in case and gave him Rocephin. BUT the dr said that he had a virus that is why his fever was so high. The kid has not had a fever not even for a minute after hte antibiotics. I looked up Rocephin and found that it is not used for "2ndary bacterial infections due to viruses and flus and colds and such. I really just want to find out as much as i can about the creeping eruption, Can these things get into his body .. other than just the skin? Since they did the MRSA test should I send my child to school untill the test comes back? Looking for opinions along with facts on the condition.
Nope.. The only thing they gave him was antibiotics because of the fever and infection. No ANTIHELMINTHIC TREATMENT. But I am heading to look that one up..,I have NO clue what that even is.

can erythema migrans come back?
Can erythema migrans(bulls eye rash) come back in the same spot?
Some infected people with Lyme disease have no symptoms at all. The most common sign of infection, seen in about 80% of people with symptoms, is a pale pink or reddish rash called erythema migrans, which spreads out from the site of a bite after three to thirty days, but usually between five and fourteen days. It is not significantly itchy or painful, and may be difficult to see on darker skin. Patients may also be feverish and have some enlargement of the lymph glands near to the site of the rash. They may also complain of aches and pains and feel very tired. The rash can spread to cover quite a large area of skin but it will gradually clear, usually from the centre outwards, which may give a target-like appearance. Erythema migrans rashes usually fade after three to four weeks, but can occasionally last much longer. They disappear rapidly with appropriate treatment. (+ info
