Are small red itchy spots on hands and legs signs of chicken pox?
Hello. I just read through your question.
What you are describing is most consistent with a viral rash. Typically these begin as red spots, sometimes itchy, sometimes not itchy. They last between 1-2 weeks and then resolve. They are not contagious, even though they sometimes look like they are.
If she is itchy and it is difficult for her to handle that, you can use an over the counter anti itch gel. Otherwise, there is nothing else to do.
Also, you said it isn't contagious, right? Is it ok for her to go out in public?
Thank you so much for your help.
