Question: Hi,

I am on vacation and noticed a couple of scab looking things on my daughter's torso. These two spots have been there for two days. She doesn't have any other spots. Could they be chicken pox?

Brief Answer:
bites

Detailed Answer:
hi,

Thank you for the query.

I do not see them to be chicken pox lesions. Is there itching? Is there fever or throat pain or any other symptom?

I checked the pictures. My first impression with the small nodule like lesions can be two reasons:
1) Insect bites... Please check if there was some sort of hiking in woods or at the river camps
2) vascular malformations

Await details from you.
