Infant with Papular rashes

2.5 month female infant born at term without complication. Received her 2-month vaccines on schedule. Brought by parents due to this vesicular papular rash. They report that it began yesterday with one spot on the abdomen. Infant has continued to eat normally, with formula milk. No ill contacts. No fever. The vesicles were filled with serous fluid. No definite umbilication to my eye. My differentials are Varicella versus widespread molluscum.
