  • Did she have a mild cold and slight fever in the past day or two? Those are the first signs.

  • she has been sick off and on since x mas i have had her in the doc office so many times theese past few months its crazy,but she has had a little cough but no fever,if she does have them will the bumps come all at once or do they pop up over time?

  • If it is chicken pox, they are likely to spread as the bumps are being scratched. I would take her to the doctor to if you begin to see them spreading just to be sure what it is and that way the doctor can offer you advice.

  • I would call the Doctor espcially if she was vaccinated for it! As I remember it though Ch. pox start in the warmer regions of the body tummy, under arms, back of the neck... try putting her in a warm bath and see if you can make more come up. Either way I would call your Doctor for there recommendations.
