Just need a sense check.

dd's chicken pox rash came out on Monday afternoon. according to nhs website, there's no evidence to show that it is contagious after day 5 of the rash.

so can I go out tomorrow, or do i have to wait until Sat?

can you tell I'm stir crazy??!

gp told me ds was contagious for a week after the spots appeared. a looooooong week.......

Once the blisters have turned to scabs.

Although when DD had them we did take her out for a walk in the pushchair, to get some air - BUT we only walked down deserted oads. Any sign of people and we skipped a road. Never saw anyoone that day at all!
