Chicken Pox

Chickenpox causes spots (a rash) all over the body. 

Some children feel generally unwell for a few days and others will only be mildly ill.

Most children are much better within a week. The blisters dry up and scab. They gradually fade but may take up to two weeks to go completely. 

There is no need to see a GP for this condition, however your local pharmacy will be able to advise on over the counter products that may relieve some of the symptoms suffered.
