DD has just 5 spots, all vesicles, one on tummy has now crusted and looks exactly like chicken pox. Got first one on sun, rest popped up yesterday. She has had no temp no under the weatherness nothing. Today i found out her friend has chickenpox.

Is it possible to have it so mildly? I've taken her to all her usual groups/science museum/tube/ friends houses so have spread it far and wide if it is. Thought they were flea bites from our new cat. blush

Need to know so I can keep her in for the next few days if it is.

Yes AFAIK it is possible to have it very mildly. I also thought that DS had cat flea bites until the next day when he got poorly and I found out that it was running rife round the school hmm

Hmmm, better keep her confined to barracks for a few days. Sigh....
