poor thing. they are awful but its better they get them while theyre young. mine have been in contact with ppl wou have gone down with it but have never caught it. i do wish though jami had. as shes almost 11 and ive heard its worse when theyre older.

hope he feels better soon xxx

have you tried asking at the chemists.

My two have just had it and thankfully the spots never bothered them - was sooo lucky.

I was advised though that there is a cream you can get which sooths and helps to prevent the itching. Calomine lotion ( and you can get cream too) just sooths it apparently.

sorry not much help. Hope they start to get better soon. It was being stuck in that drove me crazy!

It may sound strange but Sea water is very good for skin conditions including chicken pox,trouble is it's not the most obvious place to take a sick child. Especially at this time of year Teeth

When my youngest, ben, had chicken pox a few months ago the doc recommending using something like priton to help with the itching, never tried it cos he wasnt really bothered about them but might be worth trying.

calamine lotion and bathing in poridge oats not soap (porridge oats in a foot of a pair of tights, use as a sponge) works a treat!! Very happy
