Carson's bandaid reaction

Earlier last week Carson was jumping on the couch and landed on the arm rest where a woodden toy box sat. We decided to put a Band-Aid over it so he would stop picking at the scab that had formed. Then on Saturday Todd decided to pull it off to see how it was healing.

I walked into the kitchen a few minutes later not knowing what Todd had done and saw Carson's red, puffy marks. They looked like burns on the side of his face so I immediately began wondering what he had gotten himself into.

I asked Todd if he had seen Carson's face and he replied that he had just removed the Band-Aid. It took a good 24 hrs for the swelling to disappear completely. It appears that he is allergic to the adhesive found in Band-Aids. Good to know!
