so we went and my husband got to fish for 2 days and I ended up working all day sat nut I got to go to the beach sunday monring for brunch and then we came home. Have to get the house ready for the kids Monday(i am a home daycare) i dont know if any are coming in though since I called all the moms on Friday with the bad news. On the good side if their kids get the chicken pox they wont have to keep them out of daycare since they got it from us.Always thinking positive

They generally are such mild cases, no one will even suspect he has them. The next question is...have the rest of the family had them?

Do/Did you have any plans for your vacation?

I had chicken pox when I was 16 and it was not fun being a teenager. It's not bad for little ones, just have to stop them from scratching to much.

Ok so thanks to all that responded but I ran my little guy to the ped. today and YES ITS CHICKEN POX....I cant believe it we left today (this afternoon) on my only vacation this year and its Chicken pox turns out only 80% of kids vacinated dont actually get the chicken pox, the rest(like my son) will only get it for 3 day instead of for 14 to 21 so thats a blessinf. I had to call all my daycare moms and let them know. OH WELL at least I dont have to go through this with him in school, its done at 3. thanks for the help

Hey,

I'm a mom that the doctors thinks has no business with kids. My daughter would have been in his office by now. They hate to see me coming. "explain it to me". My daughter had a bite on her back that got infected, internally. There is a black infectious bump there now. I took her straight to the doctor. He told me what it was and I dont care that it wasnt serious for her, I wanted to know.

BEFORE YOU READ ON, DONT PANIC! I AM NOT GIVING ADVICE NOR SUGGESTING THAT THIS IS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR SON, NOR THAT YOU SHOULD RUSH HIM TO SEE THE DOCTOR. YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON BETTER THAN I DO. I'M AN OUTSIDER WHO CANT EVEN LOOK IN emoticon


Just one week before that happened to my daughter, I heard on the news that a little boy died from an infection that spread from what his parents thought was a little bite that got infected. So you see why I ran her up to the doctors office. The infection could have been some form menagitis. (If you havent read, my memory is aweful!) what ever it was, it was an infection that spread through out his body.

I hope you figure it out.

How is he doing today?

“I run because it’s my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I’m going where I’m going and I’m already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory!”

It's still around plenty, it's the young kids that get it. You get fever, then sores in the mouth (they're painful), then end up sometimes with blisters on the hands and feet. Lasts 7 to 10 days, working through the various stages.

I'd call too but do you have kitties? Could it be (& the spelling is probably all wrong) Infantigo? It is rash that I had as a young kid. I don't know what exactly causes it, we had an immaculate house when I was growing up & when cat boxes were necessary they were kept out on the back porch. Just know it had to do with cats. Was VERY treatable and didn't take long to get rid of..........

I would call the Dr. just to make sure what it is. There could just be something going around but you want to make sure.

Mitch did too, got the pox bout 6 months after having had the shot. I was freaking at the time, because a year earlier a friend's daughter had died from complications from chicken pox, and my then youngest was the same age.

Fifth Disease, they also call "slapped cheek" because you end up with bright red cheeks as if your face has been slapped.

Can't think of anything else, my kids have had hand, foot and mouth disease, but you only get blisters in the mouth from that.

Michael did get the chicken pox even though he had the shot. Sometimes that happens, they get a milder case of them so it could be possible.

It is possible to get chicken pox even with an immunization - one of my sons had them twice (confirmed by the dr.!) Also there is a viral infection with the nickname 5th disease. It is pretty harmless and does start out on the face I believe. Don't rule out allergies.
Good luck!

How about ringworm?

Has he been on antibiotics? Amber got what everyone thought was chicken pox(in spite of her having shots). Turned out to be a harmless skin reaction to some antibiotics she took for a nasty respiratory infection.

my three year old has had congestion for 6 days and a cough(ok so no big deal right) on that first day he got what looks like a misquito bite on his cheek (big blotchy red spot) no big deal he has been alergic to misquito bites for years. that spot looked to be healing and then yesterday he got 3 more on his face, this morning his ear has to red spots on the outer rim. OK NOW I AM STARTING TO PANIC I looked up chicken pox(he has had all his vacines) and it doesnt reaally match , oh and no fever. Has anyone else had this?
