Tiredness with chickenpox?

Dd has had chickenpox since Friday. She has been coping well but is covered in spots and hasn't been sleeping well at all. I took her to the GP today who said she had 'active' chickenpox and I just needed to ride it out. She has just fallen asleep though, which she never does at this time.

Should I be worried? She is 2 btw.

Slept at odd hours because he didnt sleep well at night he was tortured with the itching.

dd1 was v tired with CP, and it lasted for a good ten days afterwards. She was just 4 at the time.

I wouldn't worry, as long as her temp isn't shooting up higher, and she isn't in pain, it sounds normal. Hope she's better soon!

She does have a fever, which started yesterday, but the dr said with so much virus in her system it was to be expected.
