My 22 month ds got his first spot last night, and is now covered in them. I'm 37 weeks pregnant, having a section on 13 Nov - somebody please tell me ds will be fully recovered by then? Luckily both me and DP have had it before, so hopefully immune.
Thanks both! 5 days not too bad. Don't mind him looking spotty for longer, as long as he's better and not infectious. So far he seems quite chirpy with it, so fingers crossed it won't be too big a deal.
Having just been through chicken pox with my dd3 (went through our small village school) we were told by the gp that the latest reccomendation is they are infectious up until 4 days after the last spot appear.
Highly irritating for us as dd3 had mega easey version of CP where all spots where out by Monday and scapped over by the wednesday but due to this she has just had 2 weeks of from school (the week before half term and then half term)
