Re: Please help! Identify these spots on my 10 yo ds

Vaxed kids tend to get a milder form of CP. Your DH should swing by walgreens and get a shot now. My DH is also not immune and I keep badgering him to get the shot!

Re: Please help! Identify these spots on my 10 yo ds

Adults are supposed to get 2 doses 4-6 weeks apart, but it's still 75% effective if you just get the first.

Still no change this morning. No itching and maybe a couple new spots, but not a lot more. Still not bothering him. If it is indeed chicken pox, when should they start itching? He has football practice tonight, does he need to stay home or do you think he's okay to go? As of right now, all spots are still only spots, not blistering. Anything else it could be?

I had CP at 24 with no itching at all. It is supposed to be worse with adults. I would not take him to anything til he gets diagnosed.

That's what I figured too - stay home until we know what's going on for sure.
I had not heard of chicken pox not itching. Did they still blister up like normal?
I put in a call to the dr to see about taking him in, but they said to wait because chicken pox are hard to diagnose correctly the first two days of the rash.

I do not remember mime blistering like normal. It has been over 15 years ago now. I do remember seeing those spots though and was given medication to take to stop the onset.

Re: Please help! Identify these spots on my 10 yo ds

My great nephew has 2 spots and he's been diagnosed with Chicken Pox. They don't itch and he doesn't even care that they are there. He's only had one varicella vaccine but this is a super mild case.

Just thought I'd update

We went to the dr, to get a confirmed diagnosis, so that we wouldn't bedding football and the spots were not chicken pox. She said that he probably had some sort of viral bug and this was the after effects rash. Spots never did bother ds - didn't ever itch - they took about a week to go away. I was a little surprised. I was sure we were dealing with a mild case of pox!
