Can anybody confirm for me?

Is this chicken pox. DD is fine other than spots but they're blustery so thinking chicken pox rather than an allergy rash?

Looks like the start of chicken pox to me!

Looks like it , how many spots?

A few but not loads. When DD1 had it a year ago she didn't get very many spots either though. Thank you. That's more quarintine for us then! I've just gotten over a sickness bug and the 48 hours was up today 😭.

Well she's covered now they have just all appeared quickly throughout the day! Got the lotion and piriton from the chemist and will pop her in and out of oat baths as much as possible tomorrow but does anybody have any suggestions as to what kind of clothes to pop on her? Will certain things irritate her skin more? DD1 was 5 when she had them and could tell you if she was itchy but she had such a mild case she didn't really need anything. DD2 is only 1 and can't communicate her needs the same so trying to keep her as comfortable as possible. She already has 3-4 times the number of spots DD1 had.
