34. Ethan has got swollen ankle/feet?

Ethan woke up this morning with a flush and warm body. I guess he was having a slight fever today. During breakfast, Darling saw 3 red marks that looked like insect bites on Ethan’s right leg near the ankle. We were not sure if it was caused by mosquitoes or other insects as we did not see the ‘culprit’ who did it. By now Ethan is getting warmer. To soothe his temperature we gave him the usual Uphamol 120 Infant Syrup, double dose as it is 120 and not 240. (as advised by the doc).

By noon, Ethan’s right leg, below the knee has doubled up in size. Ethan has always been sensitive towards insect bites. Normally, the area around the bites will get swollen, but this time around, the whole leg especially the ankle got swollen. He is still a little flush now and we still did not bring him to see the doctor as this happens to him quite often. My only worry is, his whole leg is getting swollen. Will monitor his condition for a few more hours and if it doesn’t recede, we’ll go to the doc. Hopefully, everything will be alright.
