Children ; Vaccines: Most children in the uk are vaccinated against the chicken pox. Are you sure she has not already been vaccinated?

Maybe,maybe not: The average cpx case has >200 spots that come out in waves over a 6-7 day period.They often start around the neck but soon end up anywhere. Some have oral and genital lesions. The lesions go from small to larger ruptured blister in less than a day. There are other agents that cause blistering lesions, so only a look by someone knowledgeable about the illness would be sure.
