1 doctor agrees
In brief: No, not smallpox
Small pox has been eradicated, meaning it no longer exists in our daily lives.
Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine a red spots rash to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are related to medications, viral infections, or allergies. One should bring to the doctor a list of all medications used in the month before the rash appeared.

In brief: No
The WHO announced World-wide eradication of Smallpox on May 8 1980.
Smallpox has no animal reservoirs. So Smallpox would not return naturally.
