Hi, could anyone pleas tell me, do i need to tell parents who's children my dd has being in contact with recently, that dd has just developed pox?

she has 3 spots which appeared last night. She also had high temp.

dd is 9 months and my first so no experience whatsoever with this!

Is it also the case, that some parents may want dc to mix with dd in order to catch it??

thankyou in advance.

I would, although when DS got it most of the children in preschool had it. So nobody was surprised.

I hope she doesn't suffer to much luckily DS didn't really itch.

HV's don't recommend purposely infecting your child.

Thanks chuckeyegg.

Feel bad about it, as at a baby group yesterday, before i knew she had it. Mostly new mums at the group.

Don't feel bad it's not your fault, often better to get it younger as you usually suffer less. I got it at 4 months!

Thankyooouu!

Just made a few phone calls to break the news.

I have heard that it can be better to get it early aswel. At least now its out of the way. Sending dh to get calomine lotion and piriton.
