    Default Is this chickenpox?

    We have just moved into a new house and the previous occupier had dogs and at first I thought these were flea bites but I haven't seen any. Ds is starting to get more of them now and even though he has a bit if a sore throat he doesn't have a fever and I was wondering if perhaps it might be chicken pox? What do you think?ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1392716374.108473.jpg

    If he has a sore throat it MAY be CP, but that could be totally unrelated too.

    Do they have any clear fluid leaking from the sores?

    My advice, can you get him to a doctor after hours? If not, try and get him into a doctor tomorrow.

    Sorry not much more advice here.

    I'm no expert but I remember mine bc I didn't get them until mid teens and that's how they started out. Has he been vaxed?

    Could be, are they on his back? Mine started on my stomach and then went to my back before I found them everywhere in 24hrs. Are they itchy?

    Does he have a temp? Cold like symptoms???

    Could be flea bites. Maybe let off a few flea bombs n vaccum after

    Yeah he's been vaxed. He does have one large one on his ankle but I just thought it was a bite.

    He's scratching but that could still be insect bites.

    When DD had chicken pox they where like pimple white heads all over her, she wasn't quite herself leading up to them coming out which I put down to a usual childcare bug and then, BAM, overnight she was covered.

    I'll try and find a photo to show you.

    Grr sorry that didn't work and downloaded version is tiny, they will begin on the torso though and be worst there before spreading.

    Maybe Google some images and compare
