If you have had chicken pox then you have transferred a temporary immunity against chicken pox to your baby. This usually lasts for about 9 months but sometimes less than that. It is unlikely but not impossible that your baby will get chicken pox. If she does develop the chicken pox rash then contact your paediatrician immediately. It is too late to give her the chicken pox vaccine at this stage. She should be kept away from the creche for the next 5 days.You do not need to stay away from work.
