on Monday 8th April
First blister noticed on wednesday about 7pm after bath. High temp and projectile vomits all wednesday night. He is now covered on his trunk, back, bottom (and his boy bits- poor boy) and they are appearing on his face as we put him to bed tonight. Generally lethargic and wanting cuddles today.
Even if he is not contangious would you take him with crusted spots?
this is the wedding that I asked about last year- our first family event since his health has improved! just our luck :(

Oh no, what awful timing, and poor Luke - sounds like he's suffering with it.
If he's ok in himself by Monday, and the spots are scabbed then I'd take him, hopefully he will be xx

Oh that's rubbish (we have the pox here too!). That'll be almost 2 weeks won't it, so hopefully he'll be much better by then. As Deedee said, if he's crusted over and feeling well I'd take him. xx

Just realised it's a week on Monday - the spots should be crusted over, and well on the way to healing by then. x

Official advice says five days from the first spots so that will be fine as long as he feels ok. Hope he's feeling better soon xx

O I'd think by a week on mon he would be fine. Isaacs just had the pox and he was very ill in the lead up then was fine when the spots appeared. Cal pol, neurofen and virasoothe and piriton were lifesavers here

I would say he is likely to be ok. Zoe had a pretty bad dose, first spots came out on the Wednesday and she was fully scabbed over and back at school the following Thursday. She was absolutely fine in herself after the first 3 days.

No idea on the pox, but just wanted to say what bl00dy awful timing! Hope he's better soon and you're able to go to the wedding x

thank you. It is awful timing. He's suffering with spiking temps so we are keeping on top of the calpol and i have priton and gel in ready. Oddly he doesn't seem concerned with the spots I think he's struggling with the virus more, but he is being very protective of his tummy- he's got a big crop of blisters around his gastrostomy site (the feeding tube port in his tummy) which is obviously causing him lots of discomfort where it rubs on the plastic.
How would you feel as a guest at the wedding seeing a child covered in spots (even if he isn't contagious?)

He'll be fine by then. F had a week off school when she had it & she had tonnes of spots. If I were a guest at the wedding and saw a spotty child I would presume that the child was no longer contagious as surely no-one would take their child somewhere like that if they were still contagious?

If his spots are scabbed over and he's at the wedding I'd honestly not think anything of it at all. Isaac was much worse than Lucas with the pox and was really ill with temps and vomiting and diarrhoea, he was fine (still spotty) after about 3 days, then the spots took a week to go but were crusted over before that so I'm
Sure L will be fine. X

hope so. day 4 and they are still coming thick and fast. big red blisters. He's also still having temperatures and we've had to drop his night feed to try and limit the puking at night. How long until they start to dry out?
