I think that DD may have chicken pox. If so I am very happy to have her get them now and not after the baby is born. (Idon't want 2 at the sametime). But my issue is that I am not sure. dose anyone have a good pic of the start of the rash. I know I csn just wait and see, but DH is away and wants to know whats going on with his baby girl. What are some things to look out for? I don't see a point in taking her to the doctor but I want to know what to do to make this a easy for her as I can. I know what the books tell me to do but I want some advice from some moms that have been there.

Can you help me out?

Symptoms of Chickenpox

Chickenpox causes a red, itchy rash on the skin that usually appears first on the abdomen or back and face, and then spreads to almost everywhere else on the body, including the scalp, mouth, nose, ears, and genitals.

chickenpox_illustrationThe rash begins as multiple small, red bumps that look like pimples or insect bites. They develop into thin-walled blisters filled with clear fluid, which becomes cloudy. The blister wall breaks, leaving open sores, which finally crust over to become dry, brown scabs.

Chickenpox blisters are usually less than a quarter of an inch wide, have a reddish base, and appear in bouts over 2 to 4 days. The rash may be more extensive or severe in kids who have skin disorders such as eczema.

Some kids have a fever, abdominal pain, sore throat, headache, or a vague sick feeling a day or 2 before the rash appears. These symptoms may last for a few days, and fever stays in the range of 100°–102° Fahrenheit (37.7°–38.8° Celsius), though in rare cases may be higher. Younger kids often have milder symptoms and fewer blisters than older children or adults.

When I was a kid with chicken pox, my mom put me in the tub with cool to lukewarm water with colloidal oatmeal.  I also remember lots of pink calomine lotion! LOL

Both my daughters had chicken pox. If you post a pic, I could tell you. By tomorrow, you'll know for sure if your DD has the pox. There's nothing you can do about it, except oatmeal baths and lotion, as the OP said.
