hi my 9 month old daughter has got some red/pinky pimples, theres some clusters on top of her chest a few on her belly, and a few on her back, and she has got some single ones on her legs. they came up last night and have got more today. she seems fine otherwise. feels a bit hot but no temp, has been off her food the last few days but otherwise happy and healthy. when my eldest had them i seem to remember her being covered in them so i dont know what to think really does it sound like chickenpox to anyone? thought maybe heat rash but doesnt really look like that.

Normally starts on the could be Dd2 recently had them at 9 months old, they seemed to spread more slowly and were less intense than Ds3's. Ds's looked more blistery, where as dd's looked more pink, and then turned into blisters, but her pox reaction/symptoms not as strong as ds.......

Could it be a heat rash?

My 14mo has some spotty type illness, on her torso, started on Friday but they haven't blistered so think I can rule out the pox. Not sure where she'd have caught them from either, it's rife around here but she hasn't socialised with anyone who's come down with it recently and would have expected my big two to catch it first.

Can it take longer than 2 days to become obvious pox? confused

Apologies just seen that you've ruled out heat rash.
