Chicken Pox? Picture**

My daughter is 3, she woke up with these bumps on her cheeks, they have now spread to her legs and arms.  Is this chicken pox?  I left a message for the nurse at her ped office.  I also have a 2 year old in the house and I am worried about the possibility of this being contagious and speading to my other daughter.  Is this chicken pox, or ER worthy?

Chicken pox usually starts out as blisters.

 It looks more like an allergic reaction to me.

It is hard to tell, it kind of looks like it though, is she scratching them?  How quick is it spreading?

Quoting tlcory:

She says that they itch and hurt.  The bumps were on her cheeks when she got up at 6 this morning, they have spead to legs and arms in 3 hours. 
 Edit** She is also running a low grade fever
