I get a call from Kids Club at 4pm to come pick Alissa up because she has chicken pox. Uh huh...she's been vaccinated for that. (I know that doesn't prevent her from getting it, but the dr said the chance is slim.) Anyway, I get there, she is happy as a clam. Ask her if she's itchy and she says no. I give her a closer look, and most of the red dots are flatish, and all fairly uniform, so I don't think it's chicken pox, but whatevs. So I tell KC that I'll let them know. It's on her face, arms, chest, neck, and butt. It spread throughout the day.
Call the dr, it's not chicken pox, they said she would have purple bumps and it would look like blisters. It's most likely roseola (she had a 103.8 fever on Wed) or heat rash, or even a combo of the 2.
But I so can't take her to swim lessons tomorrow. The nurse said she would be fine to go, but the other parents would be giving me the mad stink eye. She's probably right, I got stared down at Target.
Benz...what was it that your dd ended up having? Didn't she have something similar?
But Alissa said she really likes her new polka dot look.
