Have you ever heard of chicken pox bumps returning after 5 days?

My son's chicken pox is coming back.

Yes, Sometimes chicken pox will have "a second run". Although not as contagious as the original. Be sure the poxs are simply not reinfected original pox-marks.

The bumps returning could be a sign of trouble. Some people's immune systems have a hard time fighting off the infetion. He may need a trip to the doctor.

No it is not coming back after 5 days, it is just spreading and not getting better. You need to get some more medicine and call your doctor as soon as possible.

That is pretty rare but not unheard of. It all depends on how you have been treating them if they will come back or not.
