Evaluation : Please see your physician, this may represent a vaccine reaction. Other possible causes include non vaccine related allergic reaction. On the weekend, Pediatric urgent care is available. Please be seen right away. They will evaluate him for the use of an antihistamine, once he has been seen.

? rash ?: Rash labeling is more likely if seen or described in detail.What you describe is likely hives,which are like a food reaction or could be from some minor component of the recent vaccine.The chickenpox shot can trigger a pox (blisters) like rash 1-2 wks after given. Any reaction to the MMR would have occurred earlier.I would give benedryl for now to help with rash/itch. Contact his doc if increasing
