Hot weather or start of chicken pox?

DD (nearly 15 months) currently has a temperature of around 37 and although her body is normal, her forehead is so hot. Nursery have said she has been her normal happy self today and she ate and drank as normal this evening. However chicken pox is currently making its way around nursery and they have had around 15 children off with it recently and I can't help but think that maybe this is the start of thing. What does everyone else think?

You'll know in a couple of days when she gets spots or doesn't. In the meantime the same applies, lots of fluids and Calpol if she has a high temp.

If she's been exposed to chicken pox at nursery it's pretty likely, so you might consider avoiding kids parties and pregnant ladies this weekend just in case - if she has it she's already contagious.
