DD2 has chickenpox. Spots coming thick and fast now. DD1 (6) is asthmatic. She is on Seretide. Do I need to do anything if she comes down with it?

I'VE heard that it can be worse for those on steroids.

I think it is oral steroids that cause the problem, there is a warning on the information. not sure what happens etc but when my son has bad asthma and is on steroids i make sure the childminder is aware to inform me about chicken pox.
