My nephew has autism and is on psychotic drugs. He has gotten diabetes from the medications he has been taking all these years. He also has fits so this is another medication he receives. Recently he started getting low blood counts so they had to juggle his medications to keep his blood count good, now he's been told he has cellulitis. He breaks out scratching and he can't stop. I regularly give him antibiotics and anti-histamines, and always have to watch he doesn't scratch too hard and bleeds. There is rash on his skin and blood results were wrong, revealing sepsis.
