I don't normally post about my family and what's happening but I had to share this with you, especially Mum's of young teens.
My DS, whose nearly 13 has been wearing long trousers through winter and hadn't told me about a sore on his leg, well after catching a glimpse I asked him about it and he didn't know how he got it, it looked like a graze and we thought nothing more of it.
Fast forward a week later and the sore had become a festering mess and not only that he had the same on his other leg too, he hadn't told me it was changing. A trip to our local doctor and a swab test soon revealled it was Golden Staph, big problem is it's gone rampant and is now affecting other areas and it's now moved to his face, arms and torso. His face has copped it pretty badly. He's now on his second round of antibiotics and creams and I'm hoping he can stop it from spreading and getting any worse. His only dissappointment is that he's on school holidays and has been quarantined to the house. School goes back on Monday and it's unlikely he'll be going for at least another week.
Here's a pic of his face, I won't show you his legs, they're not very pleasant!
So to all those Mum's of young teens, make sure you get your kids to tell you about any sores on their bodies and keep an eye on them, they can turn quickly into something much worse!
