It is unlikely to have chicken pox at 7 months age since maternal antibodies are known to protect the child atleast till 9 to 12 months of age.
Anyway chicken pox or any skin lesion needs to be seen to make a proper diagnosis. Chicken pox also is unlikely given a 10 days history.
Kindly consult a good pediatrician to confirm and get treatment accordingly.
