DS developed a rash on his bum over the weekend. He is not in diapers, and DH put jean shorts on his with no underwear on one of the hottest days, so I thought maybe it was irritation. I put some coconut oil over it, and it looked better in the morning on Monday. It looked the same on Tuesday. Today, he has 2 big pimples, one where his underwear is, but then another on his thigh, so it appears to be spreading, or they are bug bites. DS is not at all bothered by the bumps/rash.
We just moved. Our old pediatrician is now 45 minutes away without traffic. We have a well visit already scheduled at the end of the month. If I see his pedi for this rash, I can't leave here until 2, which means, I'm looking at least an hour commute home. I am really busy with my job (I work from home) and can't really stand to lose so much time driving.
THe other option is using a clinic at Walgreens, which is closer. I would not hit traffic, either, since it's mostly back roads.
Part of me feels like I should do the convenient one, but I wonder about their expertise. Plus, DS has had some skin issues in the past. OTOH, I often feel that pediatricians at our office have not been 100% sure when we have brought kids in with different skin issues.
