I discovered earlier today that my daughter has what I think are chicken pox. Shes got quite a few red spots all over her (not the water filled blisters I thought was usual, but hey ho!)
Obviously she'll be staying off nursery for the rest of the week at least, but what do I do about her brother and sister? I've looked online and it says that siblings generally get them within 2 weeks of the first one, but I can't keep them off school for that length of time as a 'just in case' surely?
My sons school is the one I'm most concerned about, as its a special needs school and some of the children there have quite low immunity. I can't even ring in the morning to check, as the school bus collects him before the office opens!
Both the older ones have been around children with chicken pox before, and neither have caught it, so I'm wondering if they are already immune?
I've been a mum for 9 years....can't believe this is something I don't know about lol!
