hello paulbailey1030,
this may not be chicken pox, because, chicken pox will occur over the legs, forearm, back, and of course can occur over the body. They will be of different size and initially filled with fluids. They will be of various sizes and shapes. At timew will be itchy.
Other possibilities can be divided into two groups.
Some thing inside the body
1. Blood infections like viruses
2. urine infection
3. Motion worms or infection
coming outside the body
1. The drug we are using
2. The diet we have given
3. The chemicals
4. Water we have used for bathing and washing
5. Playing in dust
6. Playing near plants
7. the dress we have used
8. any insect bite.
In general, these are self limiting problems.
To consult again
if there is marked reduction in activity sleep and feeding
if the rash spreads, becomes itchy, oozing of fluid or pus formation occurs.
hope this cleared your doubt
with regards
