Not sure if this will upload but, is this chicken pox?

It looks very much like it, give it a couple of hours and said DC will be plastered in them. If it has a yellow pussie middle it will be the Pox. Get some bicarb in the bath later to neutralise the acid in the spots.

looks like chicken pox. is that the chest/tummy - if so it does usually start there.

You can get something called 'balneum' bath oil that I found helpful for mine. or eurax cream. SOmetimes its not too bad for them - good luck !

Thanks, she has a few dotted around her abdomen and back but not covered. She was dropping with sweat last night but she's not ill in herself.
That's the weekend truly messed up if it is CP.

She probably would have felt ill about 5-7 days ago. Once the spots are out they usually feel better. Think it takes about 4-5 days until spots scab over.
