Chicken Pox (part 2)

I mentioned in earlier entry that April has got chicken pox. I have yet to see any spot or rash appearing on May's skin. Doctor had mentioned the incubation period varies from two to three weeks. The virus can easily transmit from the infected person incubating even a few days before rashes appear. Infected persons continue to be contagious until all crops of vesicles have crusted over.

April was unwilling to let me take a picture of her back which grew the most amount of rashes and blisters. She finally let me take a picture of her face when she had finished building a motorcycle with the IKEA DIY toy set.

April was genuinely good girl, as she didn't complaint about any discomfort or itchiness. May be it was because she had got the vaccination of chicken pox before. So, the virus infection was just mild and caused her no fever at all.
Besides, she obeys at my instruction of strictly no scratching on the spots.
