We've just got through a week of hell with my 5yo only to yesterday discover my nearly 9yo has got it again for the second time. Obviously we won't send her back to school on Tuesday but will she be ok to go back on Friday? That would be day 8 providing everything has scabbed over by that point. She's fine in herself (so far!!) just spotty.
