Could this be chicken pox?

My son has had a weird rash starting on Tuesday. It's definitely not bug bites (he sleeps with me and we definitely do not have bedbugs because I am neurotic about stuff like that--literally). I looked at them this morning and even just in a day (while he was at school) until I looked at them again tonight, they seem to have spread down his stomach. They are itchy and start out like flesh color bumps, then once he itches them they seem to get a red dot in the middle?.. I'm going to call the Dr in the morning but just figured while I was wondering I'd ask if anyone had any ideas of what it could be...also wanted to add he has not had a fever but as had some cold like symptoms as well (runny nose)
The clear stuff on his chest in the last pic is neosporin because that one was bothering him and looked kind of red..

Re: Could this be chicken pox?

No, sorry. They don't look like it to me. Could he be having an allergic reaction to something? When my girls had the pox they started off as little red dots and they were pretty cranky with runny noses. Within hours they had multiplied several times over. The next morning they started blistering and kept accumulating for a few days. They also spiked fevers. Has he been vaccinated for it? One of my children had had a single varicella vaccine and she still developed pox but never got a fever and only had 8 spots. She was considered a confirmed case due to her sisters having blistered outbreaks including the fever AND we knew where it came from and were positive of what it was. But children who have been vaccinated against chicken pox can get it, although they rarely get a fever and it's a very mild case.

That doesn't look like pox. It does look a bit like the heat rash my ds gets on his bum though
