Rash after MMR jab

The nurse told me to expect one 6-10 days after. We are on day 4 and she is covered! But its not the kind of rash I was expecting. I expected a pin prick rash like socci described on her rubella thread. These are bigger and some look like scabs [confused emoticon]

She is happy and running round causing chaos as usual but is maybe a bit more tearful.

Hands up those who think its related to jab, hands up those who think it's something else like chicken pox.

chickenpox- leave it a few hours and it'll be obvious if it is. if she's happy in herself I wouldn't bother seeing a dr, just strock up on calomine lotion (and homeopathic rhus tox is good for itching).

Thank you I'll see how she goes this afternoon.

I'm more itchy than she is!

I'm guessing by the amount of itching that it's definitely chicken pox bless her. You always get it on Sunday's when you have no chance of getting anything from a chemist!

Let's hope the MMR rash doesnt add to her condition.

Thanks for all your help
