Do a search under health and you will see some threads.

Too soon to tell. It looks like the incubation period is at least 7 days, and can be as long as 3 weeks.

I exposed my son too, and am willing to share if he comes down with them. We are in Burlington. I will definitely post if we get them!

I'm looking for pox as well - in Central Vermont. Watching to see if there's any going around here.

My DS is not feeling well today. I'm hoping it's the first sign of pox, but haven't seen any spots yet.

I thought my 4 year old had the chicken pox. Doctor says in was a viral thing or bug bites. We don't have any bugs.

DQ,
is your doc assuming your 4yo has been vaxxed?
They seem to put on blinders to "vax-preventable" disease symptoms.

(Just ask my neighbors, whose daughter was diagnosed with "bronchial asthma" when she coughed for 100 days and then recovered completely )

My son has a fever that started this morning and he also threw up once. He has been very lethargic for most of the day too, so here's hoping! I will definitely post if he has any pox appear.

That's exactly what was going on with my son a couple days ago. But by the next day, he was completely back to normal, and no spots have shown up.

Here's a big thread we've had going for a while about sharing pox in VT/NH/ME:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...&highlight=pox

Could we all stick with that one thread, so everybody gets the message when there's activity? That would rock
