hospital! He started running a fever on Thanksgiving Day and his mom,(my step-daughter) thought that it was because he was teething. Well, the next morning while she was changing his diaper, she found what looked like a pimple on his little bottom and on his inner thigh. His fever got worse through the day and they took him to the doctor and the doctor admitted him to the hospital and said that he has mersa, (sorry if I spelled this wrong), they sedated him and lanced both infected sites. He is doing better today and his fever is down and he is eating and drinking. My question is, how dangerous is this for children his age? I don't have alot of knowledge about this and I am really worried about him!!
