So today I notice my almost 2 year old son has bumps on the inner part of his thighs.. it looks like/feel like there is like a pimple like head on  them... does this sound like chicken poxs? I know most of the time they start of on the tummy area and back area. The thing is.. is that he has had the chicken pox shot!! I kno its not an allergic reaction to anything cause i havent changed anything.. so what do u mommas think??

who are you to judge me

Sounds to me like it is more of a rash from his thighs rubbing on his pants or his other thigh!

 

Here is a link to a picture of what the Pox look like - more like little white bubbles with fluid in them.

I had the chicken pox in like second grade and i dont remember them being like a pimple. I brought the the illness home from school cause another girl had it in my class. So even though I had the shot I still got them.  Is he scratching and itchy? If you think he has chicken pox I would be taking him to the doctor ASAP. You might also look in to measels and mumps they can also be bad illnesses with bumps on the body. good luck mama hope he is ok

That's what I was thinking.  Chicken pox looks more like blisters than pimples.

The Pox shot doesn't do anything but make the virus less bad! My son had the Pox shot and developed Shingles instead of the pox last year!

I think it might be a rash, but I'm not positive, so here's a bump!
