My Poor 2 Year Old :( Do Ya Think? in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted April 10, 2009 · Report to Admin IM sorry, perhaps I didnt explain our history well enough as I wasnt really thinking it was celiacs related! My husband worked at the public schools as a custodian when my kids first got it. My first son who is a twin was hospitalized 2 times for ear infections (yeah that is a whole other story) a month before he got it. My sister and her husband had it for a while before this though. So really, it could have come from any number of places. In his diaper area, a red boil appeared. My daughter, his twin, a week later, got a red boil. They were on antibiotics and it went away. I disinfected my ENTIRE house, every nook and crany. This is when they were 10 months old. Joshua was born 2 months later, and at 10 month old, so a year later almost to the exact DAY, he got the infamous red boil in his diaper area. Antibiotics, went away. Sterilized my house. I asked, WHY in the world, and HOW in the world, could he have gotten it at the same exact age, a year later, and they dont have it, no one has had it since then, then he just came up with it. They told me no matter how much I disinfect our home, it is in our noses, on our skin, ect. He just got it again maybe 3 weeks ago on his chin. Elijah (my older twin) had it maybe 7 months ago on his knee. Elizabeth I think has only had it the one time. I had it once on my stomach while pregnant with my baby who is now 8 months. The doctor didnt even give me antibiotics because it was already draining, and it was positive for MRSA. My sister and her husband and kids all have had it at various times. They seem more suseptible to it though, they have had it much much more. She also disinfect. To make the assumption that I dont know it is dangerous and that I need to clean is far fetched. MRSA is extremely annoying to me. I wish it never got here. Now it is here, and we deal with it as it causes us harm. Luckily the kind of MRSA we get is the skin infection, when it gets in the blood it really really bad, usually when people die from it. I disinfect everything on a normal basis anyway. I am a freak like that. Thanks for all the links, but I am in contact with quite a few doctors because of it. Infectious disease has said it is in 70 percent of homes, even if it doesnt cause a problem. It will always be in our home. People come to my home and dont get it. My dh lives here and has never had it. My baby has never had it. I have had it once in 3 years. Elizabeth has had it once in 3 years, the other 2 boys twice. I know what it is, how it works and what the dangers are. Thanks though Forgive me. I did not mean to imply anything offensive. Bowing out of conversation.
