Chicken pocks lookalikes all over body
Hi Doc, I have suddenly started getting these cicken pocks like things on my body or like small mosquitos bites all over my body. the thing is that I did get pocks when I was younger so I cant get them twice right. I dont thinks its dust mites in the bed either cause where did it suddenly come from? It itches a lot and is leaving markes, could it maybe be an allergic reaction to medicine i took. I had the flu and a doc gave me some strong S4 pills could it maybe be that?

Dear Sandy
Medicine would cause an itchy rash or big red hives, it usually won’t cause blisters. You can get chicken pox twice if you did not develop proper immunity the first time. Maybe your doc should just have a look at the rash to be able to make a proper diagnosis and treat this correctly?
