Hope she feels better soon! ...Read more
Red rash on 2 and a half years old. Rash is a little bumpy. Slight fever. No pain nor itching....Is it chicken pox?
Different stages: The rash in chicken pox is very itchy and is characterized by having different looking rashes on the skin at the same time. This represents the evolution of the rash over time.

My 1 year old developed a mild case of chicken pox from his varicella vaccination. What should I use for the itching?
Chicken Pox: Good for getting the vaccine- even if you get chicken pox, it is usually much milder! Making your child feel more comfortable is the main thing. Give tepid baths with baking soda or oatmeal powder to soothe itching. Prevent scratching when possible. Keep the skin clean, and cool. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever (NO aspirin) Call your doc if there is high fever. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just out of a cold. Severe whole body itching with skin bumps. I had chicken pox before. Fyi h1n1 is re-breaking into my area.
Post-infection rash: It is not at all unusual to develop urticarial (hives) following viral respiratory tract infections. Your body does lots of different things with its immune system even when you just have a "cold", and some of these immune responses trigger certain cells in your body to release histamine and cause the itching and rash. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) orally is your best friend here, to settle reaction. ...Read more

Go to your doctor: Without having her seen by a doctor, the cause of her spreading rash is uncertain. A clue to chicken pox is that lesions on the body are in different stages. For example, some lesions may be red bumps, while others may be pus bumps while others are starting to crust.

Hi my 3yr old daughter has chicken pox,besides the itching she's complaining of stomach aches, feverish, and marble size gland behind her ear?
Chickenpox: There is no one thing that works but there are a few tricks. Warm showers may help. Oatmeal baths have some soothing properties. Calamine lotion can work but you wind up painting yourself pink! Systemic antihistamines can help but I would recommend the broad-spectrum, sedating ones as these tend to be more effective. If all else fails distraction techniques may work if you feel up to it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
