Hi Subha,
Thanks for writing in.
You dont need the vaccine since the vaccine is given to prevent chicken pox, not treat it. Further, if you get chicken once in your life, you'll never develop it again. You should take Zovirax under the guidance of a physician. To be effective, it needs to be taken within 24 hours of the onset of the rash. For the fever, take Tablet Crocin 1 tablet as and when required. Do not take any aspirin , combiflam or any other drug. The rash usually appears in 3 or more waves and will eventually resolve on its own.
It is ok to have a headbath during chicken pox.
You should be waiting for atleast 4-6 months before you plan a baby. By this time, you would have completely recovered.
