    josh has a few lil blisters over his body. started with one on the top of his leg in his groin area and now he has one on his shoulder and one on his back. hes not been ill or anything just random lil blisters everywhere....

    could it be chickenpox???

    also when your lo's had chicken pox are there any of you who didnt have it during childhood - how did it affect you?! phil didnt have it as a child....

    Hi hun with chicken pox they get blisters on their tummy first then spreads quite quick. Might b something else but if he isn't unwell wouldn't worry to much but if u can get him in with dr just to check what it is and put your mind at rest xx

    Hey Hun my niece has just recovered from chicken pox! They started off looking like bites and the filled with liquid turning into blister looking things! She was fine in herself then had flu like symptoms! Adults can have shingles which I've heard isn't too nice! xxx

    To get shingles as an adult I'm sure you need to have already had chicken pox. Shingles can cause nerve damage, but apart from
    The elderly ive never really met anyone who's had them especially bad. By bro had shingles at 14ish, and it wasn't any worse than cpox.

    Getting chicken pox as an adult is meant to be worse than as a child, but sorry, dunno quite in what way. Xxx
