My son (15 months) had the MMR and chicken pox vaccine last Thursday. Tonight he has little bumps all over his belly & face. He's not sick and they don't seem to bother him. Is this a reaction from the shot?

i am not sure i would prob call and ask the doc or the place where he got the shot and ask if it is normal my boy has never had a reaction before


hello - June 10

i was told a week later they can develop a rash from the chicken pox vacc, so its probably very normal though here in aus its done at 18 mths ... or at least i remember it was, (memory loss lately hah) call the dr to be on the safe side, though like i said i was told a rash or so can appear and its completely normal.

What did the ped say? When my dd had hers (8 years ago, when the vaccine just came out) they told me that 1 in approx 10,000 would get the chicken pox. Guess who did! Yep, my baby!! Maybe that's what it is??? I'm interested to hear because Carlie will be 1 in July and will be getting hers. :O}

CyndiG sorry it took me so long to answer! The dr said it was probably from the shot. The rash went away on it's own thank God! I thought it might be chicken pox too and guess what I never had them! I'm 33 weeks pregnant, that would have been lovely if I would have got them! lol Hope Carlie doesn't get a reaction!

Hmmm. Interesting. I'm glad it wasn't the chicken pox! I can't believe you've never had them. That WOULD NOT be fun during pregnancy! I hope Carlie doesn't get a reaction either. Morgan also had a reaction to another shot. I can't remember which one now. I'm a good mommy huh??? LOL! In my defense, it WAS a long time ago. Anyway, her leg got really red and swollen, she had to take medicine in the dr's office, they wouldn't let me leave. It was a big deal. She's just sensitive like that. Poor thing! Carlie seems to be a little bit tougher. We'll see!
