"I have found no reference to septicocheal virus"

My hunch is that septicocheal virus is a mishearing of Staphylococcus aureus, which as a skin infection would present with the very symptoms described.

Sharon may have got the spelling wrong - I'll try and get more info, but it seems that this might have resulted from a bug that Lewis's half brother had when he visited after Christmas. Lewis sticks to Mark like glue when he's around and it's thought that his coughing may have exposed the little one to something that just took hold in his blood. Just one of those freak occurrences I guess.

I have found no reference to septicocheal virus, either, It sounds like it means an ear infection. But Stevens Johnson Syndrome is a skin condition. In any case better is better!!!

I'm glad I missed this thread so that by the time I got to it there was a happy outcome. It must be terrible to have a grandchild so far away when you're so worried about how he is. And worried for his parents too.

Anyway here's a quote that came to mind when things came out right:

He prayeth best who loveth best
All things both great and small,
The strepticoccus is the test -
I love him best of all


Though when I looked it up it turns out that the man who wrote this, Wallace Wilson (it's a parody of a verse in the Rime of the Ancient Marine)seems to have had "I love him least of all", which may be truer, but I rather prefer the way I've always known it, with "best".

Just got a call from Sharon. Lewis was sprung from the hospital late this afternoon. I spoke to him for a moment - he still sounds a bit poorly but is obviously much better.

He sent his dad out for KFC for his dinner and, according to Sharon, ate quite a lot - he never has been a big eater normally.

They have 24 hour access to the hospital and if they are at all concerned can take him back for a check up without a GP referral, which is a comfort. He's on oral antibiotics for 5 days and, so long as he is fit enough, can go back to school once he finishes the antibiotics.

They got back from the hospital to find that a neighbour had left a dish of lasagne for their dinner so they are being taken care of, which is a comfort to me.

Lewis still has a way to go before he's totally fit again but it looks like there will be no problems coming out of this. It seems that they were putting lots of antibiotics into him to ward off the possibility of Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

Anyway, he's home, neither Sharon or Steve need to be at work until Monday and they are all going to get a well deserved rest for a few days.

It was most likely a skin infection caused by the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. This is not uncommon and most often occurs in pre-pubertal children.

Glad to hear the good news!

What is a 'septicochal virus'? I can't find anything on it. There's streptococcal bacteria, but otherwise I don't have a clue. (Guessing it's strep, because antibiotics don't work on viruses.)

Anyway, I'm just happy he's feeling better.

I just got this email from Sharon, having asked how Lewis is today.

Much brighter-the rash has virtually gone,his eyes are still not right but not as bad as they have been. He's had mouth and eye swabs taken today, more bloods and the cannula taken out!!! We should get test results back this afternoon then we can hopefully go home. They are fairly confident it is the septicochal virus. He is not taking paracetomol or ibrufen any more just to make sure they were not masking his temperature. Has to have another 4 days of anti biotics orally. He's definitely turned the corner!!!

Now, maybe, I can start breathing again!

I dreamt about Lewis last night. He was going to be arrested for taking drugs. The officer was an idiot and I kept telling him thatwhen people are in the hospital they have to take drugs to get better. He finally left. Lewis was riding a bicycle and looked fine. Keeping that picture in my mind.

Thanks for coming back to us Jacqui.... I will keep an eye on this thread.

His symptoms remind me of many an allergic reaction I've had to medications (cillins and sulpha drugs), somes food and insect toxin (flea bites).

On occasion could be life threatening but mostly it was only bloody annoying.

Praying it is nothing like so serious as SJS and good thoughts still flowing Lewis' way.

Been surfing. Interesting - measles have been known to trigger SJS although a reaction to drugs is more common.:

A. Drugs aetiology
i) Antibiotics – Sulphonamides, Amoxycillin, Ampicillin,
Ethambutol, Isoniazid
ii) Anticonvulsant – Phenobarbitone, carbamazepine, phenytoin
iii) NSAID – Phenylbutazone, Salicylates.
B. Herpes infection
C. Mycoplasma Pneumonia
D. Many viruses, enteroviruses, adenoviruses, measles, mumps
E. Bacteria, Streptococcus, typhoid fever

Note to all Motrin and Advil (ibuprofen) have multiple lawsuits re: SJS.
