Vaccinated?: If your son was vaccinated against chicken pox, it's a lot less likely to be that (although it still can happen in milder forms). This will be a good one for your doc to checkout in person (since we can't see the rash). If he has no fever, vomiting, headache, and is otherwise looking well, then you could probably wait till tomorrow, otherwise take him to an urgent care today. Hope he feels better! ...Read more

Wait four seasons: New c. pox scars need a year to fade and blend into normal skin. For now, one can use daily facial moisturizer with sunscreen. For treating future permanent scars, techniques include chemical peels to smooth out tiny defects, dermabrasion to sand the skin to become more even, and injecting fillers into some spots. Different dermatologists may use different methods, so it is fine to get 2 opinions. ...Read more

You need to be: Examined/have someone look at the rash. If you had chickenpox, you wouldn't have it again. You may have a different virus or a reaction to something you were exposed to. Rashes are very difficult to diagnose without seeing them. If you are a HealthTap Prime member, you can contact one of us that way and we can look at a photo of the rash. ...Read more

Be gentle & patient: For now, avoid rubbing or scratching the lesions to prevent infection. If you need relief, gently apply cool compresses. After the acute illness subsides, protect any scars from the sun, which tends to cause darkening of scars. Continue for up to a year for the scars to mature and fade completely. With a bit of luck, no further treatment should be needed. ...Read more
