Ds2 had chicken pox(quite badly) at the beginning of July,followed by dh and then finally Ds1 2 weeks ago.
Dh has just bathed ds2 and has noticed about 15 new spots on his chest,although they're not blistery ones iykwim.
Definately do not look like a heat rash,as they're dotted around,rather than in one place.
Can it be possible to get it again,so quickly?

I've also had it twice,as a child,but just wondered whether it was possible to get it again so soon after having it.
