He is 18 months old and has not been himself for a couple of days which i put down to teething..

Could be but you'll need to wait and see if more appear

HopeFull28 Sun 30-Apr-17 11:29:47

Ok thanks. If it is would he be contagious now?

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sun 30-Apr-17 11:30:19

Yes it would

Imnotaslimjim Sun 30-Apr-17 11:31:12

Yes he will be contagious, until the spots crust over.

Has anyone at nursery or wherever had it?

Ok thanks

Yup, that's chicken pox, or at least it's exactly what DS's first spot looked like. Give it a couple of hours, you'll soon know as he'll quickly get more.

He doesn't go to nursery yet his daddy is a sahd but goes to toddler groups and swimming lessons blush not heard about anyone else having it..

HopeFull28 Sun 30-Apr-17 11:36:21

He went back to bed at 10.30 which is unheard of so will see when he wakes up

Certainly looks like it could be. They will start popping up quickly if it is - more every time you look!

My DS had it at around that age and his first spot was on his stomach.

If it is I can recommend cool baths with bicarb in.

Thanks for the advice he's still fast asleep completely unlike him will update when he's awake

HopeFull28 Sun 30-Apr-17 12:49:30

He's awake, no more spots yet but going to stay home anyway just incase

Chicken pox spots generally look like "a dew drop on a rose petal" (old saying but ) ... i.e. a tiny blister in the middle of a pink area.
