Is this chicken pox?

My DS has 2 of these spot type things, well only 2 that I have found. What do you think?

Look pretty ominous. When my two got it it started off with two spots. Has he had any other symptoms? Normally there's a high temp. You'll soon know because by the morning he'll be covered. Let us know the outcome.

I thought viral illnesses like chicken pox started on the torso .

They do look a bit suspicious though. How old is your son ? Could they be teenage spots ? <hopeful>

It looks a bit blistery. If more appear, I'd suspect chicken pox.

Both my boys had a spot on thier face and a spot under thier arm. Chickenpox CAN start with one pox on the face.

These were chicken pox, we are on day 4 now and look like they are scabbing over. They are everywhere!!
