View Full Version : Rash

16mo mindee came Friday, was a bit teary, by lunchtime had a temperature so contacted mum to give Calpol. Kept her here because she wasn't sick and was happy to sit on the sofa etc.

Mum said shed been exactly the same all weekend, I said it was fine to bring her yesterday just kept up the Calpol and lots of downtime. Today mum says she has developed a rash so has to take docs.

Mum suspects chicken pox but the rash is across her face and chest at the moment (seen a pic).

Any ideas what it can be? Seeing as we've all been exposed anyway, does it make any difference if she still comes if diagnosed with chicken pox?

It could possibly be a viral rash it just appears when children are off colour with a temp, unusual for chicken pox to come out so quickly usually 1or2 spots on body which then spreads over a few days. Good that mum is taking her to the Drs hope its nothing to bad. What would other parents feel if a child came with chicken pox as you say she has been with you and was contagious last week discuss it with them, some children are quite poorly with it so may need to stay at home others sail through as if nothing is wrong.

Thanks waiting on the response from their doc appt and just hoping its something minor. I hate having to charge and not being able to offer care.
