absolutely no adult benadryl, it's like 3 bucks at Wal Mart. Give him 1 tsp of children's benadryl. If you can't, wait until morning and go to the Pedi :) keep an eye out for fever!

Okay. Sounds like a plan. Yeah, we don't keep much medicine around here and I am 100% broke, $0 right now. He is acting normal and still has no fever, so I'm just going to HOPE he's all good in the morning!

Thanks everyone. I'm so stressed. This kid has been sick ONCE ever.... I don't know what to do in these situations.
