My DS (2.5) has just thrown up for the 1st time. Hes now fast asleep on the sofa, but is not a happy bunny.

He hasnt got a temp, but has 2 spots on his chest, one quite big and the other is small. Its not blistered and as far as im aware have only appeared today.

My Dad is suffering from shingles at the moment and i know its quite rare to catch CP from it, but is it likely to be the begining of the pox? Or one of the vom bugs doing the rounds?

Your poor darling. If it's chickenpox you'll know within the next 24 hours. If it's any consolation I found the younger the child, the easier to deal with it.

Well after a 3 hour nap, he woke up fine. Wasnt sick again and ate a few chips off my plate. Hopefully it was a one off up chuck.
