Anyone who is the parent of a toddler, knows about rashes. They seem to pop up on the bums and bellies just about every other week, starting as early as three months. As a child gets into his/her toddler years, rashes seem to be stimulated by nearly anything, including heat, allergies and diaper or clothing sensitivities. The more experience a parent has, the more capable they are to be able to diagnose a minor rash in the privacy of their own home, without having the burden of a weekly trip to the doctor’s office.
But, some rashes are not to be messed with. Mom and Australian resident, La Vonne Palmer, knew that the rash that she spotted on her toddler one morning, wasn’t an ordinary one and further action needed to be taken. Unlike the red blotches that are fairly normal when associated with a rash, her son Eli had black round spots on his legs. When she confirmed that the mysterious spots were accompanied by a fever, Palmer knew it was best to see a doctor. Hoping that the doctors would asses the spots and say it was some minor form of a rash, Palmer took her son in right away. And it was good that she did, because if she had waited any longer, Eli may not be alive today.
