Child has chicken pox, itching, fever, sneezing, coughing, runny nose. Anything I can do?

My daughter has had the chicken pox from her vaccine for about 3 weeks now. Mostly on the lower part of her body and they itch . Two days ago she had a high fever (102.4 orally) followed by what look like chicken pox on her hands, feet, and around her mouth but I believe she has Hand, Foot , Mouth as a friends child had it. Well this morning, on top of all that, she woke up sneezing and coughing with a constant runny nose but lot s of snot when she sneezes. Is there anything I can do for her other than pushing fluids (which she ll hardly drink)? Thanks

Chickenpox is viral infection and it is self limiting.
It will take 6 to 8 day to disappear if child have not got secondary bacterial infection.
It required supportive treatment only.

I would advice:
keep her/ him Hydrate. Is most important condition.
1.Give plenty of water(1/2 liter water+ 4 tsf sugar+ 1/2 tsf salt) Or ORS
2.Coconut water, lemon water Butter milk, Rice Kanjee,etc
3. Proper hygiene.
4 Avoid out side food.
