My 5 year old son started having severe diarrhea and vomiting this morning and he keeps scratching his upper thigh. He said it's very itchy and asked me if I could put something on to stop the itching. When I looked at his thigh there are a group of 4 little bumps, almost look like little bites. We had a notice sent home from school last week that chicken pox are going around school right now. Do these symptoms sound like chicken pox? Just wondering if I should keep him home tomorrow?
Also I have had the chicken pox myself and I was going to be hanging out with a pregnant friend of mine. Is there any danger of being around her even though I've already had them?
