Hi pinki,

Firstly I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist so that a course of antiviral as well as antibiotic can be started to treat chicken pox.

Scarring in chicken pox occurs when the lesions get infected or if lesions are picked or squeezed. There is no harm in applying calosoft however application of topical antibiotic cream is more beneficial.

Hope that answers you query. Take care.

Calamine lotion will not produce any scars..,
it is only soothing lotion..,
Disease itself give scars..,
these are depend upon the severity of the diisease..,
less intensity will leave small scars..,
So go for proper treatment for this..,
