HELP! chickin pox?.*update on gwen

Posted by   + Show Post

*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.

 Even if she had her vax she can STILL get the Chicken Pox - just a milder case of it.

Could be a number of things so hopefully the Dr. can give you good news that it's something easily treated. Good luck!

 It could be scarlett fever. My daughter had that when she was 2 years old and it looked like that.
