What Could this Be?? Chickenpox??

Hello to the Friday Followers!

Happy Friday!

My little one hasn't been feeling well this week. Late Monday night, he began running a fever. He was lethargic, coughing.

By Tuesday evening, he was all congested, runny (nasty) nose, coughing, fever....just feeling bad.

Wednesday night he seemed to be feeling a little better. That's when I noticed him scratching his head. He had some itchy bumps here and there on his scalp, and what looked like a zit on his cheek.

Yesterday, he developed a few more bumps on his face.

(He really isn't as happy as this picture makes him appear!) See the spots?

And the red, raw nose, along with the spots?

Here's one on his hand....

(Yes, that is the chocolate of a Cadbury egg! Good for all that ails ya!)

I consulted Dr. Google and discovered that, although rare, you can get Chickenpox from the vaccine....which he had just 3 weeks ago. His fever started on day 18 and Dr. Google says the incubation period is 10-21 days. These cases are usually mild with fewer than 20 spots.

I'm thinking it probably happens quite often and parents just fail to report it due to the mildness.

So, what do you think? Is it Chickenpox????
