tell me what you think....

Here are some pics of my youngest dd. I took her to the doctor today because it looks like she *might* be coming down with the chicken pox. The *rash or whatever it is* is raised pimple like dots, some have white tops others just *normal* looking. The doctor was NO help, he just said "well it could be the start of the cp otherwise something else...what I don't know". He never checked her ears or throat or anything. He just said that if it gets worse over the next week to bring her back. It was about a 2 second glance at her. She keeps itching like crazy. Tell me what you think....

her tummy



her side


her back

Chicken pox for my kids were larger blisters. That looks like something else to me.

What other symptoms has she had? How long has the rash been there? CP usually has a fever with it and the spots start on the face and trunk area. The come up into fluid filled bumps and break open within two days. GL, I hope you figure out what she has.

Re: tell me what you think....

from what I remember chicken pox looking like I don't think that's it. I have no experience with mumps/measles though.

Could it be a viral rash? DD had one, but it didn't look quite like that. See if webmd has pics up of it.

My kids have had viral rashes several times. CP to me looks like a red spot with a clear fluid filled blister on it.

The itching now, not sure about it. Maybe you could give her benedryl (is she old enough for benedryl?) and/or oatmeal baths?
