  • It is totally normal for them to actuallt get a couple chicken pox arounf the injection site. I can not believe your Dr did not warn you of this.
    My son had one chicken pock right where the injection was. It is totally normal as long as she does not have them all over and or a high fever.

  • I would call the doc to check but chicken pox normally starts in warm places like upper thighs, armpits, etc. Good luck.

  • my sons would actually get a few chicken pox after the vaccine its normal but you do need to report it to your doctor and make sure she isnt allergic to the vaccine.
