Remind me where chicken pox spots start

Ds has about 4 spots on his chest, tiny but look like they might have a tiny tiny amount of fluid in the middle, and now he has just asked his dad to bring him back from the play area because he feels ill.

He hasn't yet had chicken pox, so am wondering if thats what it is.

could be it, started that way with my dds.

It's typical for them to start on the chest.

anywhere - but usually trunk I think.

Fluid filled blisters and he hasn't had it before - would be pretty sure that is what it is.

How old is he?

It is going around at the moment too.

He is 4.10 and has a slight temp too and said his throat hurts so have given him some meds.

Sounds like chickenpox. You'll know in a few hours as the spots seem to appear steadily over the first day or two.

Most children feel better once their spots come out properly though.

Is it going round?

oh well I only said it is going round as my nephew has just had it!
