I am looking for an outbreak of chicken pox in the Houston Area. Has anyone recently exposed there kids and waiting for them to develop symptoms. I would like to expose my 2 year old after the 5th of April. Could do a day or two before if I have to. Also willing to drive if necessary to Austin or Dallas or san antonio or neighbooring cities.

Where are you located? I sure hope they get it. How frustrating that you have had to try so many times.

I'm very interested in this as well. I really need to do this for my children. Here is a question though...how old do you think a child should be to get it? I have a 3mo and feel he is too young but on the other hand I have an almost 6 year old who I would like to expose to chicken pox...
Sorry to hijack and even more sorry I can't help!

From what I am reading if you child is under one its better to wait till they turn one to expose them because it can put them at higher risk of shingles later.

Nothing yet. We are on day 9 today. He has had some slight congestion but I think that is because he is getting his molars. I have been checking his tummy for pox though a few times a day.
I really hope he gets it. I have yet to hear of another case. I can't believe how hard it is to get Chicken pox here in the US.

Sweaty and clammy when I put him down for his nap. Not sure about temperature because ours is broken. I am going to try and get one this afternoon. Today is day 11 so we are defiantly in the window!

It sounds terrible to be wishing illness on your kid, but I am. Hope it develops into something.

Okay he defiantly feels warm to me but I have no way to confirm him. Instead of buying a thermometer from walmart Dh bought if from Ebay so who knows when I will have one. I really think he has a fever though.
