Hello, is there a way to send you a picture of a rash on my son. To see if it's chicken pocks?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

He she came and told me he was really itchy and had bumps. They are popping out fast. With little water bubbles or blisters. No medicines.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Its my 10 year old son. He isn't allergic to anything. No medications. Nothing different at home.

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

He's always been healthy. Besides common colds.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He has a running nose and cough. That started yesterday. Haven't noticed a fever. About 3:30pm today. He came to tell me he was very itchy and that he had bumps. The picture is not very good. He has a few more on his arm.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He has been vaccinated. He said he had bumps on other areas. To me they just look like in grown hair. The ones on his arm. Have pimple or water bubble look.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the input.
Sorry for the delay in answering as your reply reached me late.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
I would advise to get him examined by his doctor.
The bumps with water bubble in it looks like chicken pox.
It can occur in vaccinated persons too.
The severity of the disease would be less here as he is vaccinated.
Other possibilities are bites, allergy.
You can give him Zyrtec for itching till you can see doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Wish him healthy life.

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.
