My DD's cousin has recently had chicken pox. Spots came out last Thurs, DD and cousin were last together the Sunday before that. Today my DD has a small spot on her head in her hair, with a slight crust on the top. No other signs of spots. Is this likely to be CP, if this was the case I thought she would have had loads of spots!

Yup, this sounds like chicken pox. Some children get it really mildly, it does mean they could catch it again though.

Sounds like chicken pox. She's infectious until the last spot scabs over.

Might not be chicken pox. I think they are only contagious for a day or two before the spots come out (as well as 5 days after).
