What Does A Smallpox Scar Look Like
Why did small pox? Vaccine leave nasty little roundish scars on everyone's arm?. I was born in 82' so I didn't get it.

The bump developed into a blister, then filled with pus, and drained. In the second week, the blister dried up and scabbed over. In the third week, the scab fell off, leaving a scar. I'm a lot older than you and I didn't get it either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hello doctors, can vaccines be rendered useless like antibiotics if they are overused. e.g if a new strain of smallpox was?
Not Exactly: it is not over-vaccination that causes vaccine resistance so much as mutation of the organism, whether a virus or bacteria. Antibiotic resistance occurs when resistant organisms pass genetic information to non-resistant organisms. This is more likely to happen after someone has been exposed to an antibiotic that was not appropriate for the condition, the wrong antibiotic, or the wrong duration. ...Read more
