What could this be?

Yesterday I had to pick my son up from daycare because they thought he had chicken poxs. Dr confirmed it wasn't those & said it was a rash caused by the flu, however he has just woken up and there is more on his stomach.
Any ideas?

Wish I knew. Did the ones you showed your doctor look like this?

Is he taking any kind of new medicine?

I'm thinking hives. Could this be from an allergic reaction to something?  That this did not come from the flue or other sick.

Looks like hives to me.  That's what my son looked like when he was given penicillin.  Was he given any meds or did he eat something different?

Looks like hives. Have you used new diapers, lotions, soaps, introduced new foods, animals?

That is definitely not chicken pox. It looks like hives. What new things has he been exposed to lately? Food? Laundry detergent? Medicine? Anything?

 Looks like hives!  Definitely figure out what he is reacting to and give him some benadryl if he can have it.

Those look like really bad hives! Do they go away? I don't know what hand, for, and mouth looks like but that isn't from the flu. If that is an allergic reaction it is a very bad one. He needs to see an allergist ASAP. He could possibly have anaphylaxis reaction mercy time to whatever it is. I have two kids with severe allergies and require Epipens
