A child can get a mild chickenpox rash even after taking immunization.

The symtoms you have given could not be of sunburn, which is very uncommon at this age. It could be chickenpox or some other viral exanthem. Consult a dermatologist immediately.

Chickenpox should be treated by starting oral aciclovir as soon as possible. The early intake of acicvlovir reduces the duration and severity of symptoms and also prevents permanent scarring
