User:Hi Doctor
User:I was infected with chicken pox some 14 days ago
User:now since i have recovered ,what should I take for meal..is there any precaution which I should take?

Doctor:You do not have to avoid anything in particular
Doctor:in diet

Doctor:You can use regular over the counter multivitamins for a month like REVITAL or BECOSULES
Doctor:one tablet a day
User:and the major concern is the scar mark..please prescribe some cream so that the scar marks removes completely
Doctor:The scar mark would take from one month to six months depending up on the dept of the skin involved. These marks have the naturall ability to fade and perish
Doctor:I suggest my patients to use oat meal baths
Doctor:or Bath powders
Doctor:After the crust is fallen down you can use MEDERMA cream
User:what is bath powder?? you mean the normal talcum powder?
Doctor:No you can buy herbal bath powders in grocery
Doctor:Did you follow what I said? Can you summarize our discussion?
Doctor:If some scars are even left after three months you can consider a dermabrasion by a Dermatologist
User:Please prescribe any specific herbal bath powder..since when i asked for the same in grocerry shop..they could not understand what exactly I meant
Doctor:I do not remember the brands. Shubra is one brand. You can buy baby herbal bath powder like Himalaya, Pigeon as well and use them. But bath powder is common term used. It is very commonly used in this part of India.
User:ok Doctor..thanks a lot
Doctor:Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.

Please proceed with your query
User:Doctor,actually I had chicken pox...now it has been 14 days...I feel good now...i was prescribed bath powders to remove the scar marks..just want to know doctor..how to use bath powders?
Doctor:Each of those products will come with specific instructions on how to use them.
Doctor:Generally one or two spoons of this powder needs to be made into a paste
Doctor:which can be applied all over the body before you wash it off with water.
Doctor:Most of the products recommend not to use soap or cleanser for additional benefits.
Doctor:You can follow specific instructions mentioned with the product about its usage.
User:can you please prescribe me any specific bath powder?
Doctor:Personally I haven't recommended bath powders to my patients.
Doctor:You may ask for those herbal products.
Doctor:If there are no fresh lesions
Doctor:Alternatively you may prepare a mixture using crushed almonds + or other roasted grams mixed with aloe vera
Doctor:and apply it on as a paste to the affected areas before washing off.
Doctor:Have you followed?
User:yes doctor..but you know both almonds or aloe vera is not readily available in the market..so plz suggest something which is easily available in the market
Doctor:You would get almonds easily in most of these markets. It was something that I have used on myself in the past. Therefore my suggestions.
Doctor:Or you can visit herbal stores and ask for subra bath powder
Doctor:It should be available.
User:ok doctor..thanks a lot
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
