Dear Worried mom
chicken pox begins like mozzie bites and develops into blisters. Typical is that not all the spots look the same - some may be small, some big, some pimples and some blisters. He may have fever and feel sick and complain of headache.
Allergic reactions usually have itchy fine red spots and if you feel the skin it feels like sandpaper.
