Pamela H in Texas Posted January 3, 2012 Share Posted January 3, 2012 My little guy has a few bumps on his face (and one on his neck and one on his bottom). The one he has had the longest now is very well formed, ripe for scratching open? LOL He's not scratching them. I tried to look at a pic of a chicken pock close up and compare, but I just don't know. So school starts back tomorrow (btw, he also missed 4 days right before the break). Do I wait a day to see what happens? Do I take him into the school nurse and let her decide if it is chicken pox? Yes, he's vaccinated. However, almost every single child I've known in real life (mostly working daycare) who has gotten the vaccine has also gotten chicken pox. So I don't put much stock in the fact he's vaccinated. But one link said that vaccinated kids supposedly get very light cases (less than 30 lesions). And obviously he wouldn't even been to the peak yet anyway. Sooooooooo....I don't know what to do. I hate to keep him home unnecessarily and yet I don't want to infect the entire preK at the school either. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
