XP'd......is this a vax reaction?
 
Sam's never had a reaction to a vax before and I think this has more to do with him scratching at the needle location (it had been just a bump that was itching, it's the scab).....the rash started appearing a couple days ago. His vax was two weeks ago. This is not his chicken pox booster, he's getting that when I take him for Henry's 6mo check up.

This is the only place he has this rash. And, it's very similar to when he gets a bug bite and starts spreading that all over his skin. Pedi says he has a contact allergy to whatever bites him and then he scratches at, spreading teh venom/histamine/WHATEVER all over his skin.

Hard to say... Because two weeks passed without it appearing, I'd be inclined to say no, but I would ask your ped what he thinks. I would think it's from the scratching as well though. Does he have any eczema? My oldest does and it often looks like that when he scratches at his arms and legs. He gets all blotchy.

Ditto what Zanahoria said. KUP on if you find anything out!
