Is there any medications or remedies for chicken pox? Or time will heal?
There's no remedy or medication to make it go away, but there are ways to help cope with the itching while waiting for it to heal! If LO has chickenpox, you can bathe LO in lukewarm water or just use it to sponge him/her - then apply calamine lotion to help with the itch :) A good habit would be to keep LO in a few key areas and limit exposure to "public" areas, even in your house. Sleeping in cool areas and keeping hydrated might help too! In very rare cases, it is possible for someone who had chicken pox to get them again - I don't know why it happens but I got it from a team mate when we went overseas for a school trip together in 2015, but I already had it as a kid before. After the episode is over, remember to also do a big cleaning of all LO's belongings from clothes, bedsheet, toys, blankets, pillows etc!Read more
oh boy. my son has this bad right now.. He is my youngest. My eldest boy could not stop scratching when he had a mild dose some years back. Calamine did not help him much. This time I used Manuka Magic on my son during the day and Active Manuka Repair at night. He has not scratched himself once over the past 4 days!! Amazing!. I am so thankful. It was so bad that if he did scratch I am sure he would have caused infection. https://www.myplanetnatural.com/product/manukamagic/ I even shaved his head to get the cream on his sores. https://www.myplanetnatural.com/product/active-manuka-repair-50g/Read more
There is no medication for chicken pox. Only calamine lotion to ease the itch of the spots. You have to let the viral run it outRead more
