As pox causes XXXXXXX skin vesicles… often it leaves hyperpigmented scars that last from months to years. Though many of them respond to moisturiser with time… some may need some keratolytic cream or creams like eukroma or tattoing or laser.
With my experience most problems don't remain as a problem after 2 years of chicken pox XXXXXXX
I hope this answers your query …… feel free if any further query.

Thanks it puts my mind at rest. Will Bio oil help?

Hi again.
Oils of any type are unlikely to help……
What …may work if at all is a moisturiser.……
Feel free to revert back.
