My 5year old has Chicken pox. I discovered some pimples o thursday and by Friday he had a full on break out. My husband took him to the Dr on Saturday and Dr confirmed that he has chick pox.

Someone sent me this advise -

Put a cup of dry jungle oats in a sock or foot part of the pantihose. In the bath, throw a kettle of boiling water over it. Then run the bath as per normal. Bath child in that water and wash child with the sock. It helps relieve the itching and helps prevent marks.

I can safely say he is not scratching as much as before and I can see that the skin is healing nicely.

Good advice!

You can also give him some buffered vit C to help work the virus out quickly.

He has Centrum as a multivitamin so that also helped lots!

And I can certainly say that the jungle oats sock helped alot!
