Hi, DS is 13 months and has been in nursery for 2 weeks. On Friday he had quite a high temp (38.3 deg C) but was well in himself generally, eating and drinking etc, although a bit irritable. He was a bit hot yesterday and today i noticed he has spots on his upper thighs and around his bottom, and on both his knees. He does get bad nappy rash, but this looks different.
He's been fairly well in himself and hasn't had a temperature today and has been playing and cheerful most of the day - should i not be sending him to nursery? do i need to take him to the doctors or should i just wait and see? how long does it normally take to appear if it is chickenpox?
When dd had chickenpox the pox appeared pretty quickly, were raised and filled with pus. She was a bit unwell for a couple of days before spots but fairly happy and bright once spots appeared. If he has spots nursery will probably send him home if you take him in?
