Q.

Chicken Pox

My child has large blister like lesions and I am not sure if it is chicken pox or not. They are not small little blisters, some are as large as a 10c piece.

This may be chicken pox but equally likely is a reaction to sand flea bites or mosquito bites or an allergic reaction to a medicine or antibiotic. It would be best to ask your doctor to see your child if he/she still has these blisters and they are not obviously due to chicken pox.
