The number of people who have told me over the last month (I've had 2 kids with the pox) they have had chicken pox twice is very worrying, especially for someone who has been hanging on to the 'it's it brilliant when they have all had it and you never have to do this again' scenario.

Hope he doesn't have it.

Phoned the GP - emergencies only and no GPs.

NHS direct was too busy.

Local out of hours doctors - doesn't think it is chicken pox and I have to keep an eye on him.

Relief all round, it isn't chicken pox.

I think it is urticaria.

The little love was in the bushes in the garden and he has reacted before when been in close contact with greenery.

It did look very like chicken pox though. I think he is quite disappointed not to have it.hmm
