We Got the Pox
I was thrilled to learn that Chickenpox is very contagious from about 2 days before the rash appears and lasts until all the blisters are crusted over. A child with Chickenpox should be kept out of school until all blisters have dried, usually about 1 week.
Most kids with a sibling who's been infected will get it as well, showing symptoms about 2 weeks after the first child does. TWO WEEKS?!? Multiply that by 3 kiddos...AAAHHHH!!! Well my only hope is that they all get it this week : )
Now tell me again why we immunize for Chickenpox?!
