skin rash- think it may be chicken pox but unsure?

Posted by tsbplus2

Hi, My son has a rash that started between 1 and 2 weeks aftre I had a shingles outbreak.  he has not been immunized..we thought it was chicken pox but:  there are no distinct blisters, it started on his right nipple area and ankles, went down his front, sides and back and is now in the hip area, groin and side.  It looks like early chicken pox would but now it is a week of this traveling pox like rash.  Any ideas?  We live in a third world country so medical exams and treatment are limited.  thanks!
