Question: chicken pox blister on eyeball

 windowsmeg - Tue Jul 31, 2007 11:15 pm

My twelve-year-old son got chicken pox last week, and he now has a blister on his eyeball. It doesn't hurt, and his eye is not red or puffy at all - is this something to worry about?

User avatar This is one situation with chicken pox when you should call the doctor. Get in touch with your child's pediatrician right away. Keep in mind he is contagious until all sores have scabbed over so ask the office staff how they want you to bring him in to avoid exposing others in the waiting room.
