Just go with it as normal, be very vigilant about hygiene.
If you’ve not already had chicken pox you’re likely to come down with it next week (the infectious period is the week before the spots emerge) it should be treated as it normally would.
Try to manage your munchkins recovery without wearing yourself down too much xx
It will all be fine xx

Dettol!
Dettol do a spray for the air and surfaces.
I’d highly recommend it. The dettol antiseptic, you can put in your bath, and I believe you can gargle with it…. But you may want to double check the gargling!
My house and cars smell of the stuff, I’m so worried about getting ill.

Assuming my memory is correct if you’ve had chicken pox before, you’re still immune but at risk of shingle … My dd got chicken pox 4 month after my 1st infusion, i was given antiviral (acyclovir) for 1 month. Try to avoid direct contact if possible.
