Hi everyone, One of my 2year old twins has a couple of spots on her arm and tummy which started off as blisters and have progressed pretty quickly to being crusted over, she only has 4 so far and her form is very good, eating etc. Her twin hasn't got any so far confused Bringing her to the doctor today to be on the safe side but wondering if anyone else has experienced this? chicken pox or insect bites?

It is possible to have chickenpox with very few spots and DS didn't suffer much with eating etc.

Thanks for the reply chuckeyegg smile Doc has diagnosed impetigo and started her on antibiotics, didn't think of this myself as thought this normally affects the face not the body, though doc did say as she suffers bad with eczema it would effect any areas of damaged skin. Hopefully her twin won't get it!
