For how long should I keep my child at home after chickenpox?

My daughter had a bout of chickenpox and is now recovering. How long should I keep her at home?

Due to all lesions being in different stages and the high possibility of transmitting it to others, your daughter should stay home until all lesions become dry, and visit your primary care physician for further evaluation.
Until all lesions are scabbed
It will be good to wait till all the scans are clear.
Until there are no new lesions and the old ones have crusted over. This takes about 1 week
