Hi. i'm new. I do not, as far as I know, have a child with diabetes. however, i do have a nine year old boy that has been having flushed cheeks and various random symptoms of something and when googling these symptoms I found this forum. guess i was worried and surprised to see posts with very similar problems so I signed up in order to read and reply. luckily i've already got a doc appt for him today so i'll bring this up but I was just curious. he is nine, not overweight or underweight. occassionally has bright red cheeks for no reason. last night he did have an ever so slight fever of not more than 100.something and didn't feel very hot to the touch but his cheeks were flaming. when depressed, the red didn't disippate and come back...was just red still. he complained a little of sore throat but not a lot. really just seemed slow and tired. he was looking at a movie on my dh iphone and did say his eyes would be "blurry a minute" and then normal....not sure what the deal is. i will be seeing doc today so i guess i dont need to post but i got concerned suddenly. lol thats what the internet is good for, huh? thanks.
