Last September on her Bday Salma woke up with puffy eyes and ears. Babah dia sakit belakang the night before so bukalah sleeping bag which we hadn't opened for many years so we suspected kena gigit bug or a spider. We brought her to the doctor and she said allergies la ni. Makan ubat selsema biasa je but in the evening she had rashes all over her body! Flat rashes yang berubah-ubah tempat.
We brought her to another doctor and he prescribed an allergy medication that contained steroids. Don't know whether it was because of the medication or the allergic reaction but other parts of her body started to swell as well. Salma jadi comel bila her cheeks bengkak!heheheh..lama dah tak montel :)
Then Jolie lips!
Gatal sana, gatal sini, bengkak sana, bengkak sini, I (Dr Suria) diagnosed her with having Hives. After a week of this I finally brought her to a pediatrician who told us to stop the meds with steroids (we only gave it to her for 2 days) and said it was probably an allergic reaction to dust mites. Dia bagi ubat itu ini, but the next day no rashes no puffy this or that. But a few days later ada naik sikit-sikit. The doctor told us to get rid of the sleeping bag and thoroughly clean the room, dust mites tu dah terbang (walk/jump?) sana sini. Haishh..kesian budak kurus ni. Alhamdulillah dah sebulan takde :)
Dust mites - you stay away!
