Chicken Pox?

My DD is just over ten months and has a rash type thing on her back. My oldest has eczema (really dry skin) and that's what it looked like so I put on some Eucerin Cream, that's what we use to rid the oldest of it. I did this last night and I looked this evening and it looks likes it's worsen. She has no fever just this rash. Could it be Chicken Pox? If so what do I need to do? If not what else could it be? And how serious is it really either way? I don't remember anything about having the Pox except it was when I was 8.

  • Chicken pox looks like blisters and if it is just use calimine lotion and baby motrin she gets a fever. You can't really do anything for it, it just needs to run it's course.

  • Look under her armpits too. If she does have it it will be there plus they look like lil blisters, google it.

  • No I haven't changed anything not even her diet or detergent. There are none under her arms just her back stomach and back of the legs
