  • 1) fleas...... 2) mites......some kind of bug. They both love the "fatty" part of the body. Or it might be an allergic reaction to your laundry soap.

  • Chicken pox are blisters. Have any of these itchy bumps popped or seeped watery substance? If not then you don't have chicken pox. And no not everyone in the house would have it at the same time. I knew a family of six that it took 3 months to finally hit everyone in the house. Since it seems to be only you and your husband, try stripping down your bed. Vaccum the mattress good. You don't have to have pets to get fleas and mites, they might have come in a variety of other ways. Other than that, have a Dr look at the bumps.
