Can my child with chicken pox take Tylenol and Motrin?

Yes.

Motrin
You can use either to treat the fever, but only if it is high. Do not treat the fever if it is below 101 and your child is feeling okay. Studies have shown that children do better overall when a low-grade fever is allowed to continue during chicken pox. DO NOT USE ASPIRIN, EVER, IN CHILDREN!

There has been some scuttlebutt in the medical community about ibuprofen for febrile illness increasing incidence if MRSA, but nothing proven. I would not fear to use it on my kids.

Why doesn't chickenpox spread like the common fever ?

It does

Bird_flu
If a common fever is l a viral infection, chicken pox spreads the same way respiratory droplet, more infective before the rash, but so many adults and kids either had the chicken pox or r vaccine it won't be as prevalent

Is it possible to have a little fever in chickenpox when no new blister is appearing ???

Prodrome

Low_grade_fever
Chickenpox actually becomes contagious and erupts 10-21 days after your exposure (ave 14) and many will experience a low grade fever during the prodrome or blood phase that occurs in the days before you break out. After the rash has appeared and subsided (ave 6-7 days) any new fever should be monitored as evidence of a new, possibly related problem.A cellulitis or other issue may emerg.

Ive got vaccinated from Chicken pox after exposure. after 2weeks from vaccination, i have a fever and blisters. Is it chicken pox?

Can't diagnose with

Chickenpox
this info, but the time frame sounds correct. The incubation period for development of chickenpox is 10 to 21 days after exposure (to chickenpox or shingles).

I recoveref from chicken pox a few days ago. But i am still suffering from fever and weakness. Is this because of chicken pox or is it something else?

See doctor

Your question is confusing .If you recovered from chicken pox you shouldn't be running a fever. ItYou may very well have another illness so see you doctor for clarification
