Chickenpox

Hi

My 4 year has developed the chickenpox rash since last Wednesday. He still has a mix of scabs and blisters, albeit only a few blisters in his genital area and backs of legs.

When will he be able to go back to school? Do all spots have to have disappeared?

Thanks

The NHS website explains it very clearly, but briefly, all the blisters must have dried up and scabbed over.

Apparently head and shoulders in the bath is very effective at drying them up.

Thanks.

These few just don't seem to be drying up. He has alot of visible scabs but these just aren't doing anything. They are big as well. I need to do something as I'm having to take unpaid leave which I really can't afford to do.

They come out in crops, so maybe the ones you mention are not ready to scab yet.

Well he definitely isn't going back tomorrow. Hs scalp is covered in the biggest yellow blisters. As he hasnt really been itching I've stupidly forgot about his hair.
