A reaction to something is what it looks like to me... is it anywhere else on her?

My son gets rashes on the back of neck exactly like that. He has very sensitive skin & a simple tag can be the culprit.
I also have to use Dove unscented soap on him, or he'll have a breakout like that on his neck and back.

Do you think it could be the start of chickenpox?? That's about how mine started out... has she run any fever? (Sometimes with chickenpox there's a slight, lowgrade fever...) hope its nothing.

i don't think so, she's been vaccinated for it, and i'm not sure about the fever, my sitter hasn't said anything about a fever though

i'm hoping it's something simple like that and nothing contagious!!

Sadly the vaccine doesn't always prevent it. But I don't know. I hope its just a reaction to something and nothing bad.

Just keep an eye on it & see if it clears up. If he has no other symptoms, I'd just be cautious with tags and certain shampoos, soaps, etc.
My son recently broke out & I checked his soap & I accidentally had a Dove exfoliating instead of a scent free bar. As soon as I washed him with his normal scent free soap, it cleared up. He also asks me to cut tags out of some of his clothes if they become bothersome. He will also break out after getting a hair cut!
