Hello. I'm at the end of my rope with my 6 month old. I will try to break it down for you. I will make a list of everything has been diagnosed with by his pediatrician.
December 3rd - Upper respiratory Infection
December 10th - Ear Infection (was not given antibiotics)
December 12th - Another respiratory infection
December 14th - Nose swab tested Positive for RSV and had spread to his bronchial tubes
December 27th - Diarrhea
January 15th - He had a nose swab and was diagnosed with the Flu
January 31st- Oral Thrush
February 8th - Ear infection (was put on amoxicillin)
February 11th- Yeast infection of genitals
February 13th- Another respiratory infection
February 20th- Nose swab tested positive for yeast.
His pediatrician seems to think he has a case of bad luck. Our family doctor recently ran a test for Cystic Fibrosis that we are still awaiting the results. He is on a oral medicine and cream for the yeast infections. It seemed to be clearing up... the yesterday he woke up and it was back worse than what we started with on his genitals. He has caught up in weight and weighs abou 17lbs 5oz. Another weird thing that I just thought about is that ever since he has been little he has had a bottle every two hours. Still now he has an 8oz bottle every 2 hours. I never thought of it as a symptom... but I guess it could be. He acts normal and healthy if he doesn't have a bug. My family is starting to think I'm crazy and there is nothing wrong with him. My my motherly instinct is telling me something just isn't right with him. Its been one thing after another since he hit 4 months of age. At first I thought maybe his immune system as compromised in some way... but we have managed to keep him him healthy other than the recent ear and yeast infections. Never once has blood been drawn and neither doctor we have taken him to seem to think he needs it.
Do yall think I'm just an over reacting mother or what?
