*update!!! great news!!its not chicken pox!!!!  Bad knews....its a staff infection made worse from heat and her running and itching it. they gave us liquid antibiotics and a night cream to put on it.  and i have to clean everything!! its not highly contagius but it can be trasfered to an open wound.



My poor 2 year old gwen a few days ago got a couple bumps. i thought they were bug bites so i didnt think anything of it. THen that night we had ar eally HOT night so i thought hteat rash. well TOday its even worse!!!!  She has a appt. for 915 in the morning but i wish i could help her now!  im using bactine and that helps her. Iv also giving her oat meal baths which help but she is "neat freak"  so getting it on her bothered her so badly.  I have no idea what it is.  and im worried my 7 week old will get it!!  Im using same laundry soap same body soap no lotions.  and its spreading across her chest and back. and its starting on her fingers and knees!!

THey are redder and bigger then they look inthe pictures.

Chicken pox. That's my guess. Maybe take her to the doctor.

It looks like chicken pox. I would take her to a doctor or clinic to confirm

It could be something called henoch scholien purpura HSP

it looks very similar to what my son presented with when he had it 

just ask the dr when u see him/her to rule it out or confirm it

it tends to "grow" looking like a rash

Looks like chicken pox. Regardless of what it is put something like calamine lotion and/or talc on it and try not to let her scratch it.

 My youngest was diagnosed with this a few weeks ago. Worst day ever so far. I couldn't touch her skin the damn thing was attacking her blood vessles. It was scarey. Had her hooked up to IVs and gave her loritab and ibuprofen just for the pain so they could touch her to assess her. Finally when the purple welts appeared we knew what it was.

 Chicken pox would look like pimples with a clear head on them.
