Picture of a child with chickenpox:
This picture shows the classic rash that is associated with a chickenpox infection, including red papules (bumps), vesicles (the spots that look like little blisters), which then become crusted scabs. It is very common to see all of the different stages of the chickenpox rash at the same time.
Chickenpox typically starts on a child's trunk and then spreads to the rest of their body, including their arms, legs, and head. It is very itchy and very contagious, but can be prevented with a chickenpox vaccine.
