Chicken pox....bug bites???? HELP ME!!!

My dd is 4. Last thursday I noticed 4 or 5 small pimply looking bumps on her and thought an ant or mosquito must have gotten her.....the bumps however started to look worse than a regular bug bite.

A few days later, more......then today....even more......

She has approximately 20 or so bumps on

WHAT IS IT???? I might take her to the Dr tomorrow...

NO FEVER, she has been happy and fine!

  • The vaccine is no guarantee...mine GOT chicken pox from it. I'd see the doc.

  • This happened to my son last weekend, all over his back. He looked like he had chicken pox. I called his ped who gave me an appointment the next day, and she told me to give him Benadryl (I told her I wasn't sure if they were bug bites or not). After about 24 hours of the Benadryl they looked better, but not great. A week later you can still see them, but they are mostly gone. I guess they were bug bites. (I did end up canceling the appointment).

    Have you tried Benadryl or a topical cream/lotion?

  • I'd say it's the chicken pox. hehe. Ya, the chicken pox vaccine has a HIGH failure rate. Be happy she's got it mama. She has life time immunity now..naturally! With the shot, they have to get boosters for the rest of their lives with those nasty ingredients in them. Did you know that the chicken pox vaccine is harvested on aborted fetal tissue?
