We have had a reported case of Chicken Pox in the pre-school on 31st March.  The main symptom of chickenpox is a red rash made up of spots or blisters.  It usually takes between one and three weeks for symptoms to appear after becoming infected (the incubation period).Sometimes other symptoms may start a day or two before the rash appears. These can include: feeling tired and generally unwell, a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or over, feeling sick, headacheaching, painful muscles, loss of appetite.
