If in doubt, always talk to a healthcare professional.
Children should stay away from school or nursery and adults should stay away from work until all the spots have crusted over. This is usually 5 days after the spots first appeared.
Chickenpox is common and mostly affects children, although you can get it at any age. It usually gets better by itself within a week without needing to see a GP.
