I am 27 years old and I have never had chicken pox. About a week ago I noticed two small bumps, one on my clavicle and one on my stomach, that itched. Having cats I thought these were flea bites and I scratched them. Three to four days later I noticed I had lost my appetite, become fatigued and felt a dull all-over ache. By the next day I had a bad headache and felt very sore in the joints. The following day I thought the top of my head was going to blow off and my body felt beaten. By the last day mentioned, more tiny spots began to arise. In the days that followed their appearances increased rapidly and the bumps began to itch and a few appeared blistery. I waited one more day before heading to the E.R. where they labeled this a generic rash. Now, this so called generic rash has spread to my ears, my underarms, my back, torso, breasts, feet, face, and genitals. It's also on my scalp. Does this sound like chicken pox to anyone else but me? The doc says it's not, but I need a second opinion before I go back to him for any more "help."
