I've not managed to get on much lately, so sorry about starting off with a question. I had a call from the nursery on Thursday lunch to say they thought Charlie had chicken pox. Hubbie picked him up, and they showed him some spots. When I got home, he showed me, and they were just red pin pricks, not the normal blister spots. On Friday, they were the same, but just a few more. But by Saturday, and today, they are almost gone. None of them have developed into blisters and he has no more of them come either. Thing is, he's had a stinking cold for over a week (an early sign), it's going round at nursery, and he spent the weekend before last with a little boy who came out with the spots 3 days later. So, strictly speaking, he should be getting them. I've had lots of people tell me that their child had spots which went away for a couple of days, then came back with the blister spots. Has anyone else had this? Thing is, I could really do with being at work this week as 2 people are already on holiday, so if I'm off, it only leaves 1 person to do 4 peoples work. But, I have already arranged to 'work from home' as and when I can, total up my hours, then take the rest as holiday. So, what should I do? I don't want to take Charlie to nursery, only to be sent home on Tuesday. But I don't want to waste a week at home, for the chicken pox to appear the week after! Any ideas girls? Has your LO had little spots that went away, only for them to come back days later? I've Googled it and can't find that as a symptom, but loads of people have said it happened! Confused? I bloody am!
