Why William needs to get hives with his cold.
< So this is William. They broke the mold when William was born. He's one of a kind and a pile of laughs.
William can't follow the norm.
Last night, after another typical "mommy" day, William wakes up at 11:30pm in tears.
"I'm itchy all over mommy"
I'm excited, finally, chicken pox!
William is covered in hives. They look like mosquito bites. I check the cats for fleas even though they had their recent Bayer Advantage soaking - not that, too easy for William.
The only other thing William is experiencing is a cold. Apparenlty this is a common phenominom with kids now-a-days and not the first time for William.
According to this website - http://www.uptodate.com/contents/hives-urticaria-beyond-the-basics - viral infections cause more than 80 percent of all cases of acute hives in children.
William was dosed with Children's Benadryl® and coated in a healthy layer of Calamine lotion. His hives from last night were gone by morning and he had 3-4 new ones to paint.
He'll live again....Ah my William, mommy loves you and all your quirks.
