Ds has chicken pox but his eyes are red and puffy and oozing pus. Is this normal or should I take him to the Doctor. Except that he is infectious!?

I would contact the doctor and get him seen. The recpetionist will be able to advise whether you go to the surgery or Doctor comes to you. When my DH had chicken pox he had to go to the doctor and they just sat him in a separate room.

Its the Doctors suregry problem how they deal with you if he is infectious. You should see a doctor about his eyes.

You cna get chicken pox anywhere and that includes the eyes so that may be the problem Berrie but still see the doctor and tell the receptionist.
