Brief Answer:
This doesn't seem to be chicken pox

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and it doesn't seem to be rash of chicken pox.
Chicken pox usually presents as tiny blisters and bumps which show crusting and scab formation and take 10-14 days to resolve and usually heal with hyperpigmentation.
They usually appear on entire body including the scalp.
