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!
My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.
