Chicken pox or big bites?

What do you think, I think they're bug bites because i read pox have fluid in them and crust over after a few days, and i noticed them 2 days ago.

My daughter has had her chicken pox vaccine, and when i called the doctor today, they told me it could be a reaction from the vaccine..a mild one..and she asked me if they crusted over yet, i said no, she said if by tomorrow they're not then call..i looked for a long time of beginning stages of CP and it does not look like it to me IMO, i will post a few pictures below it here, what do you think?

3 possibilities, bed bugs/fleas/or chicken pox
