Doctor:It is very difficult to comment what it is without directly examining it. But from your history, the possibilities are allergic reaction or chicken pox.
Doctor:It can be only confirmed after examining it.
Doctor:If it is an allergic reaction, it would not be spreading to your baby.
Doctor:But if it is chicken pox, it can spread to your baby.

Doctor:DO you mean rashes?

Doctor:Please do not worry about it.
