What are the signs and symptoms of chicken pox?

Hii, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi, my 23 month old son has susspected chicken pox but the rash, which appeared on Wednesday seems to be less today. The rash has not yet crusted so I am wondering if it is actually chicken pox? His temperature is normal and seems to be in good spirits.

Hi, I had gone through your question and I am of opinion that it does noes not seems to be chickenpox , because in chickenpox lesions , rash leads to vesicles and then crust formation . Anyway if child is well you need not worry , get your child immunized for chickenpox , if not already done.

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us.
Wishing your child good health.
