  • I am not sure about the picture part, but I do want you to use caution when an infection occurs in that spot. Is this on the surface or does it seem deep like a boil? I urge you to have it evaluated as an infection in this spot has a pretty direct route to the brain. :(

  • Well, it looks a little like chicken pox but I checked her whole body and she doesn't have it anywhere else. And she has a fever.. It's more on the surface.

  • Has she had a bath tonight? If not, try a warm bath. It brings out chicken pox. :)

  • She did get a bath before sleep but she's up with fever now, I don't think a warm bath would help?

  • No, not with a fever. Does it look like a staph infection? I wish I could see a picture. I don't know how to post them.

  • It doesn't look like a staph infection, more like a 2 small mosquito bites I think..

  • I just had a bad experience with staph with my son, so I am very wary. Please check for purple spots on her arms and legs, feet and hands. I really think she should be evaluated. :( Sorry.
