Thanks for posting your query.
Smelly stool could be due to infection.
A stool test may be done for confirmation.
Since you have not posted any picture here, it is difficult to say whether she has developed chicken pox. Get examined by her doctor that the skin lesions she has got is actually chicken pox.
