: Both my husband & I served in the Gulf War from the start of the war onboard a ship. We spent 8 1/2 months over there, mainly in Saudi Arabi. Anyways, my oldest son was born 1 year after both my husband & I returned from there. My son breaks out in rashes all over his body. Doctors don't know what these rashes are & I've been told that he had chicken pox. So I said to the dr., just how many times is he going to break out in chicken pox? I told the doctor, this is the 7th time these sores appeared on his body. He gets blisters on his hands & feet. When he was in kindegarden, the school nurse called me in fear for his health. She said she sat in her office watching 3 knots gradually grow to the size of golf balls behind his left ear, one on his forehead & one on the back of his neck. All where his lymph nodes are. He gets upper respitory infections all of the time. One doctor said he is too YOUNG for them to be so CHRONIC & so OFTEN. My youngest son, gets blisters on his hands & feet, other than that, he doesn't have the other problems our oldest son has. My husband breaks out in the same rashes as my oldest one. I have multiple GW syndromes. So many, that I'm being medically discharged out of the Navy for. Thank You! And May GOD Bless Us All!
