My grandson has what...

My grandson has what looks like bites. They hurt a little and itch a little. They had been just on lower legs, now on the back of his neck and shoulders. If he hadn't had a chicken pox shot, I would think it's that. They are filled with liquid. His twin brother hasn't gotten them, so I don't know if it's contagious. I did take pictures. Thanks for your help.)

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, he's very healthy. No fever with this.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
Those do not look like chicken pox.
Bites are unlikely too.
There can be a bacterial infection, folliculitis/ impetigo.
You can apply neosporin cream over there.
He can need oral antibiotic too.
I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Wish him healthy life.

We took him to the doctor, and you were right-it's impetigo. They gave him a cream-didn't think it was bad enough for an antibiotic. Thank you

You are always welcome.

Thank you for the follow up.

Wish him quick recovery.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
