  • As it's random, chicken pox would be my first guess.

  • There are other signs to chicken pox. Has he had a fever in the past few days? Low grade counts. Has he had a runny nose like a cold? If so then it can be.

  • I don't think they're raised enough or red enough to be chicken pox but I don't know for sure, especially from the picture.

  • The pictures aren't coming out good so I can't tell. Just call the doctor's office in the morning and describe it to them. My kids were miserable and not running around being hyper. Their throat hurt (pox inside) and laid in bed eating popcicles to make the throat feel better. I'd check out that site above that shoes pox pix.

  • Is he scratching them or complaining that they itch? It doesn't look like chicken pox to me but it's hard to tell in the picture. I'd just make him an appointment tomorrow

  • It's possible, you might want to check with his doctor. When I had the chicken pox when I was 16 it looked similar and my symptoms didn't start the same day as the rash.
