If you had it as a child, then your chances of getting chicken pox again are very small, almost next to zero risk. There are those very rare people that do catch it more than once, but extremely rare. If you are on chemotherapy treatment or hadn't had it as a child then you'd want to talk to your doctor right away, but I don't think those apply to you. Hope your daughter feels better soon!
