Could this be chicken pox again?

Sorry, already posted in general health and realised there was also children health.
DD had chicken pox when she was 6 but very mildly (only 13 spots).
Now she is 8 and I noticed 3 blister like spots on her face which she said are itchy, tiny pin prick spots all over her tummy which I assumed was some sort of heat rash, and I have just discovered another spot on her back.
Could she get it twice? If yes how long does she need to stay at home I can't remember from 2 years ago?

Yes it sounds likely especially since she had it so mildly.

She needs to stay in until all spots have come out and the last one has crusted over.
