well woke up this morning to my 14months old calling mummy, so get up and change her and get her dressed and found some little spots on her tummy, then took her to hospital because our doctors are closed today and at 14months old my daughter has chickenpox.
Any one else had children with chickenpox this age?
My little bloke had them when he was around 16 months old, can't remember exactly how old he was precisely, but it was only a couple of months before he was due to have his varicella needle. He got them from his big sisters.
We cut his nails to help minimise scratching, and I bathed him in a bath of Pinetarsol a few times a day to help with the itch. We also used an age appropriate antihistamine to help stop the itching when it seemed to be really bugging him.. I used Solugel on his spots to help reduce any scarring and to this day (he is now a little over 2.5yo) I cannot find a chicken pox scar on him.
Hope your DD has a mild case xx
