Hi, I have been trying for the last year and was exposed once but it did't work. I have 2 girls, 6 and almost 3.
My 3 year old daughter got it this week. We were quite surprised she got them, but shes doing well, the hardly itch her, not nearly as bad as some of her eczema flare ups. I was curious if anyone was wanting it, and I see a few of you are, so I'm willing to help. This is my first post, but I am a long time Mothering mag reader and have found so much help from the forum here in previous years. Our naturopath said its actually pretty hard to get them when your trying, and my daughter is on day 5 of the spots, with many already crusting. We live in Seattle near the Madrona neighborhood. Message me if you want to talk more about it!
Considering 4 days ago was day 5 of the spots, (most contagious is just before spots appear, and the first 2 days or so of spots) I'm sure the contagious period is long gone. But if you exposed anyone else, whether accidental or on purpose, and they happen to come down with it and are willing to share, can you put us in contact?
