Chicken pox

My 5yr old came down with chicken pox on the 15th May. The spots started to clear an then last Thursday (28th) she came out in spots again. I was not sure what it was so took her to the clinc. They told me she still has chicken pox. Is that normal? Should I be concerned. Apart from being itchy she is fine.

Hi Ella
It is unusual for a child to get a second eruption of chicken pox - are the second spots also blisters like the first?
