The Pox!

Oh dear! I think Isabelle has got Chicken Pox!

I noticed a rather large blistery type spot on her inner thigh when I was getting her ready for bed last night. On closer inspection, she had a couple of really red angry spots on her back, a blistery one on her shoulder and a couple more in her armpit. She also has a couple of small blistery ones on her forehead right in her hairline.

I checked her again this morning, expecting her to be covered in them. She does have a few more, but nowhere near as many as I thought she'd have. She's very pale this morning and a bit quiet (for Isabelle) so I'm keeping my eye on her. I think a trip to the chemist is in order for calpol and calamine lotion, just in case it really is chicken pox.

I'm not feeling brilliant myself today. My lower back is agony! It's just frozen up on me. It took me 10 minutes to get from sitting to standing up straigh. Grrrrr. It's so flippin' annoying when this happens. I'm not going to let it get to me though. Keep plodding on (literally).

Grrrrr, not the best start to the weekend!


  1. I hope it is chicken pox; better now than later! P had it as an adult and I have never seen anyone so ill!!Both the girls had it fairly mildly;Kate had on;y a few pox altogether.
    Hope YOU are feeling better soon!

  2. Well, I'm 90% sure it's chicken pox. She's had a few more eruptions during the day, although she won't let me get up her jumper to check her belly and her back LOL. Been and bought Calpon and Calamine lotion, so we're all set :)

    Yes, I'm glad she's got it now rather than later. I heard the older you are when get it, the worse the symptoms. She really doesn't seem to be that ill, although she is wanting more loves and hugs than normal. I'll dose her up and she'll be fine. I keep shoving juice down her LOL.

    Me? I'm doing ok. My back is easing up a bit although the trip to Asda didn't do it any favours.
