Patrick Guilfoille explains in his book “Chicken Pox Deadly Disease and Epidemics” that shingles is a viral infection characterized by blisters that are usually located on one side of the body. In the case of the baby these blisters are located on back (page68). 2. Chicken pox. Shingles does not usually occur in babies, but if a baby is exposed to chicken pox earlier in life and months later the babies immune system is compromised that baby can develop shingles.
The causative agent is Varicella-zoster virus. This disease causes pain and often causes a rash on one side of the body, either right or left. The rash turns into clusters of blisters and the blisters then filled with fluid. According to the first observation, the baby has several blisters to the left side of his spine and the blisters have clear fluid inside. These symptoms reflect that the baby has shingles.

Another type of lupus is drug-induced lupus erythematosus, or DILE (Lupus Foundation of America). This form of lupus is caused by certain prescription drugs, the most common being hydralazine, a drug that treats high blood pressure (Lupus Foundation of America). DILE has symptoms very similar to SLE, such as malaise, nausea, mouth sores, swollen lymph nodes, coughing blood, patchy skin color, and fatigue (CDC). The final and possibly worst form of lupus is neonatal lupus. Neonatal lupus occurs in infants whose mothers have lupus (New York Times Health Guide).
In cutaneous anthrax there is a 1 to 7 day of incubation period, a small papule appears at the site of inoculation. A papule is a small solid pimple or swelling that may form a rash and may typically be inflamed. It develops into a vesicle filled with clear fluid. Subsequently, a small ring surrounding of similar vesicles develops and fuses. This fusion turns into a large lesion causing erythema, which is superficial reddening of the skin, pruritis a severe itching of the skin and non pitting edema ( swelling in certain parts of the body) pain is rarely experienced.
