I have a 2.5 year old and I think he has it, he had a few spots yesterday and has woken up with a lot more and he's scratchy and they are a little puss like

Part of me thinks maybe it's a rash lol but I'm in denial having to take a weeks holiday I think

We've given piritin but no calpol as he doesn't have a temp or appear ill

And what are the rules in taking him out? I've cancelled his football but....can we go to shops or open spaces (obviously not confined etc) how long if I have to keep in do I need to do this?

Keep him away from other people until they have scabbed over, at least 5 days. No shopping or play grounds.
