ds1 has had the pox very badly, i think over th worse, spots are starting to scab or some are still pusy. Today though he has a rash all over his trunk. Flat, sort ofvery small rash, not spots, sort of mottly? Cant really describe. Is this normall?

Hello mad4 smile

I think so. dd1 had that, sort of a post-viral rash I think. Lasted a couple of days.

Dd had this too, lasted a couple of days and was quite itchy, iirc.
