Coming out of bad chest infection, now small itchy red spots, vomiting. What is this ?

My husband and I have just had a very bad chest infection which seems to have faded over the last 8-10 days however, we have now both come out in small red spots that a very itchy. They came up over the last day or two. I also had some vomiting as the chest infection started which lasted 24 hours. We have both had chicken pox years ago but a work colleagues children had it about 3-4 weeks ago - could we have it?

Thanks for the query. You both should see your doctor who can confirm if it is Chicken pox or other skin rash problem. Does any of you get sharp pain anywhere ?

To answer your question, Chicken pox can happen in anyone with compromised immunity. Also, there might be simultaneous bacterial infection too.

Treatment is generally symptomatic but if your doctor confirms it as Chicken pox, he might do some test to find the cause AND he can advice vaccine.
Hope you get better soon!
