Nursery School


Chickenpox starts with red spots that can appear anywhere on the body.

The spots fill with fluid and become blisters that may burst. The spots might spread or stay in a small area. They will eventually scab over. Once all the spots have scabbed over the child is no longer infectious and can return to Nursery, if they are well in themselves.


Other symptoms which may occur before or after the spots appear, includes:

  • a high temperature above 38C
  • aches and pains, and generally feeling unwell
  • loss of appetite


Chickenpox is very itchy and can make children feel miserable, even if they do not have many spots. It's possible to get chickenpox more than once, although it's unusual.
