Possible Chicken Pox?
Ari

My oldest (7) has tons of red spots that look like mosquito bites or hives on his belly, back and arms. A couple on his legs and face have appeared in the last hour. I would say he has at least 40 of them.

My middle son (5) has a few as well. One on the back of his neck and three on his legs. They look exactly the same as DS1's.

Neither of them had them this morning and they weren't outside at all. They act fine. No fevers, no tempers, no itching.

I gave them Benedryl and put Calomine on their bumps.

Any opinions/advice?

    Please don't bite my head off for asking this but have the been vaccinated for chicken pox? If they have there is a very small if any chance of them getting it. I just ask because both of my dd got vaccinated for it when they were babies.

    You know, I'm really not sure. They are fully vaccinated so if that is one of the normal scheduled vaccinations then yes. Of course I'm sure not knowing makes me sound like a terrible mother, lol so no head biting.

    Its actually very possible for vaccinated kids to get it. They just usually get mild cases.

    I'd keep an eye on it. Give them cool baths in case if its a heat rash. Any itching or fevers and see the dr.

     The chicken pox vaccine is a sceduled vaccination so they more then likly have had it but then again they could still get a very mild case still. I say if they start to itch and can't stop. I would take them to the dr.

    Unlikely if they haven't had a fever. But possible.
