We picked up my DSS on Friday night he had a couple of spots 1 on his eyebrow and 1 on his arm now we've noticed more on his back, 1 more on his arm, 2 more on his face. He's 4, going back to his DMs tomorrow night. Should we take him to to walk in centre tomorrow morning. We know she won't take him (another thread).

Phone nhs24 for advice? Might need to get him seen today. Not sure what it is but best to be safe especially with a newborn in the house too..

Are they itchy or blistering before they scab? I would definitely take him to the walk in, no point in taking any chances with a small baby in the house. You poor thing, I know I would be super paranoid and anxious in your situation flowers

Definately take him to walk in. It's not worth taking chances with little ones.

I've taken DS in numerous times for various things. Turns out they were all easily treatable or not a major concern. I don't regret taking him in.

Oh no carol sad Is anyone else showing symptoms? Hope you are all ok flowers

Not yet, checked everyone's temp. All normal even DSS with the pox. Been googling signs in a new born and so far DD seems fine

It usually takes 2 weeks from when you get infected with chicken pox to when the spots appear. So if anyone
else in your family such as a baby, hasn't had CP, it's likely they'll show the signs in just under 2 weeks.
