What does a baby look like with chicken pox?

Jessa just turned 8 months old, Jessa has the chicken pox, Jessa has not been vaccinated. Here is a picture, I had a really hard time finding pictures of chicken pox that were not puss infused are really nasty looking. My older daughter, Alexis, who is 6 recently had chicken pox. Alexis was vaccinated. Luckily Alexis had a very mild case and it didn't look any worse than 800+ mosquito bites all over her body. Alexis has started getting the marks on her face first and they quickly moved to the rest of her body. Jessa's chicken pox started on her lower stomach and the next day I had noticed it had move downward. Today Jessa has them all over her body, even the bottoms of her feet! When I was a kid my chicken pox looked very much like this, my parents confirmed, and nothing like the pictures on the internet. You can click HERE to see what the chicken pox looked like on my 6 year old.


I'm wondering if Trenton will get the chicken pox, he is not vaccinated either. I would like if they all three got it and then we could all be done with the chicken pox. I guess time will tell!

  1. Poor things! Hoping for a speedy recovery. You know, I've never had chicken pox. Ever. I got the adult vaccine about 2 years ago...so here's hoping.

  4. Poor girl. Hope it passes soon!! I still wonder if my kids will get them, Jonas had them as a kid, but I've never had them. I guess we'll see if they inherited my immunity from them.

  5. I've always heard that anyone exposed to the chicken pox, that has not had it will get it. You said Alexis was vaccinated and still got it, so I'd have to assume that Trenton will too especially since he's not been vaccinated. Make sure none of them are around any elderly people especially ones that never had chicken pox. Adults that never had pox can develop shingles if exposed to chicken pox and this is very dangerous especially for the elderly.

    *I'm no doctor but this is information I've aquired in my few short years. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
