Well...its been 13 days since we last exposed him - so its in the right time frame! lol...This was my third time exposing him though (close friends over at our house - having them share lollies - you might call suckers? - drinks, coughing on shared food, everything! lol)...He didnt catch it the first two times I exposed him (and all of them have been just the day the spots started showing so all highly contagious! lol)... I never thought he would get them!!!<br><br>
He feels fine though...I guess only time will tell!...Not that many I can count.... 6 big ones that look like they are getting a bit pussy... And some really tiny red spots that might get bigger?... On his back, on his face, arm pit area, chest, and genital area.<br><br>
Here are the photos! lol<br><br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3189/2623443883_a7c9ce8bef.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3189/...ce8bef.jpg?v=0</a><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/2623443623_c62708ea2f.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/...08ea2f.jpg?v=0</a><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3280/2623443333_b786ef47e3.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3280/...ef47e3.jpg?v=0</a><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3029/2624268070_f323e92a04.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3029/...e92a04.jpg?v=0</a><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3023/2624267980_3aebcd9afd.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3023/...cd9afd.jpg?v=0</a><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3206/2624267624_dd2eb79c5a.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3206/...b79c5a.jpg?v=0</a><br><br><br>

Yep...I think it is...the ones on his back and face are now clear fluid like blisters and he has a few more ...still not a lot though. I dont think he will be covered at this rate...my friends boy looked like the night of the living dead he had so many but then her daughter only ever got about 8 of them! lol

Yes, it looks just like the pox. My DS had it a few months ago. Get some oat flour. My son loved to take bath and rub oat flour on his itchies. It made him feel like he could do something about it, and he said it helped.<br><br>
My DS felt fine too...no fever. The worst part for him was staying away from friends for a week (though we did see quite a few people who were interested in having the pox, so he wasn't miserable).

My three daughters just got over them. They all three handled them very differently. VERY differently.<br><br>
Once they get to the breakout stage it goes by very fast.

Here is DD2 this spring. <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/PeonyMama/MyFamily/photo#5214785714148398450" target="_blank">http://picasaweb.google.com/PeonyMam...85714148398450</a><br><br>
The ones on your DS's back look how DD2's pox did. DD1 also a lot of weird pox/rashes things that didn't quite look like CP for a long time, but then finally she broke out with real pox.<br><br><br>
They handled it really well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Good luck!

well, simply because I don't see what else it could be. I don't think they could have slept in a bed of baby spiders so looks like pox.<br><br>
I just really don't understand chicken pox these days. I don't know if it's the vaxinations, forced exposures early on, or what but, kids don't seem to get them like I did (and other kids seemed to) when I was a kid. Granted it wasn't a lifetime ago (about 18 years ago when I was 6). I probably picked them up at school unknowingly. I had them everywhere! Not just some itchy spots here and there. I was covered head to toe. There wasn't a part of my body that wasn't engulfed in spots. They couldn't have been counted in my mom tried. To make matters worse I had two shattered wrists in casts at the time and there were itchy pox under them where I couldn't scratch or wash.<br><br>
Maybe these mild cases are perhaps why we're seeing kids get them more than once these days. ??? Either way... I think you have them.

Each of my three had them VERY differently. My oldest was covered! Head to toe. My youngest didn't have as many but her back was so covered that it was scary.<br>
So it just depends on the kid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
