Red itchy bumps

Head
It is not chicken pox because chicken pox starts in the head and works its way down the body. Moreover, the rash is usually blistery. Red bumps may indicate hives

Childhood illnesses I have never had mumps. measels, chickpox or any other childhood health issue even though all of my 4 siblings did. I am now 45, do I still need to be worried about being infected around kids?

Immunization

Mumps
We're you fully immunized? If so, you should be protected. If you don't know and cannot access your immunization records, you can have blood testing done to determine your immunity level. If you are not immune to these, you should be immunized as soon as possible! Chicken pox is still prevalent, and the measles virus is starting to make a comeback.

What do the symptoms of chicken pox look like, in a child who has been vaccinated twice?

Chickenpox sypmtoms

Vaccinations
It is very rare for a child who has had 2 doses of the varicella vaccine to still contract chickenpox. The infection is usually a lot milder, no symptoms may appear and there could just be a few blisters (resembles the appearance of a dew drop on a leaf) - with or without the itch.

Chicken Pox typically starts as small red bumps which then turn into small, fluid filled blisters (vesicles) and then crust over. Typically new crops of bumps show up as the older ones are crusting. Children are contagious until all the spots have crusted.
