Thanks everyone she has had chicken pox but because of medical issues could get it again possibly.

However the spots look no better or worse than yesterday and would have blistered by now i think?

Dd2 has one spot or something on her tummy though so I will be keeping an eye on them.

My money is on cpox.

Hm, chicken pox tends to coincide or begin with a cold sometimes. DS' spots didn't look typical for a day or so - I thought they were nappy rash until they appeared on his face and behind his ears about 24 hours later.

Perhaps just keep an eye on her for the moment if she doesn't seem too miserable.

Hmm...keep an eye, dd1's pox spots took a day or so to blister iirc.

Is she itching?

Ok dd also has red spots round where her nappy goes at the top of her thigh and one huge one on her tummy. I am wondering if it's a Washing powder thing but they are all different looking spots, all red raised looking things but the thigh ones are a cluster then face ones a line then tummy one is a huge hive looking thing.

Eczema/psoriasis thing or virus, any ideas anyone?

Actually I have just looked again she has three a cm or so apart then one further,roughly in a line not perfectly straight though so maybe less of an issue.

She has four spots in a line under one eye. About a cm and a half between each. They came yesterday and haventblistered or anything and other than a cold she doesn't seem unwell. Any ideas? She has reduced immunity otherwise I wouldn't worry at all. She also has skin problems but not in a line like this before. Tia.
