Yuck!

What in the world is this on the back of Carson's head??!! He has had this ridiculously large patch spot on the back of his head for 3 months! At first the dr's thought it was ringworm and put him on topical meds. When that didn't work he started taking an oral antibiotic, which is usually not used in children under 2 years old but they thought it was the only way to clear up ringworm on the scalp. In addition, we have been using a medicated shampoo. We have been doing this course of treatment for 6 weeks and either this ringworm is a tank like Carson and only gets bigger with time or it's not a ringworm after all. We have an appointment with a dermatologist next Wednesday. Please say a prayer that whatever is on his head, they figure it out, it is easily curable and that he won't have any permanent scarring or hair loss, or side effects from the meds.
