Mother Claims Baby Is Suffering From An Allergic Reason - Doctors Don’t Believe Her

A woman brought a baby into the emergency room in the wee hours of the morning and told doctors she thought her son was having an allergic reaction to shampoo. The doctors quickly realized by looking at the boy that this was no allergic reaction, and they called authorities. They knew what was really happening: the baby had gotten into his mother's illegal drugs.

Tenessa Price, 28, rushed her one-year-old baby boy to an Oakdale, California emergency room at 3:30 a.m. on February 15. She told emergency workers he wasn't feeling well, and that she thinks he had a reaction to a new shampoo she'd used on him the evening before.

As health care workers examined the baby, they realized that this was no allergic reaction; the baby seemed to be showing signs of illegal drug use. Some common symptoms include seizures, fevers, diarrea, sweating, vomiting and twitching.

Doctors told Price to wait, then called the Oakdale Police Department. Officers showed up at the hospital and confronted Price. They searched the young mother and, sure enough, found her in possession of methamphetamine.

The doctors tested the baby and tests came back positive. The baby had used the dangerous illegal substance.

Police arrested Price for child endangerment.

The baby was admitted to the hospital and is currently being treated for drug use. After he's released, he'll be placed in the hands of Child Protective Services.

Children getting into their parents’ drugs is becoming a major problem. As many young parents with drug problems are irresponsibly bringing children into the world, more and more babies are being born addicts. For those who aren’t, it’s only a matter of time before a young child manages to get their hands on something dangerous. In some cases, parents are even giving their children small doses of drugs to keep them from crying or being disruptive. One couple was found injecting their small kids with heroine to get the kids to go to sleep at night.

Kids are often the innocent victims of drug abusers. Hundreds of kids die every year at the hands of addicted parents who are not equipped to be a caregiver.
