Hi Samantha,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

As there is scab and crust formation and begun to fall off the lesions, now it is no more infectious to others and you can send your child to the school from now onwards.

You can give non-veg after 1 to 2 weeks.

Till then continue to give home made soft diet.

Hope I have answered your query.

Hello Chicken pox is a viral disease hence once it occur automatically immunity formed in the body. In India there are so many restrictions but all these are myth so send your daughter in school just now as there is no need to delay. If your's daughter want Non-veg pl provide her the food of her choice , nothing to worry. Good luck for your's daughter as she recovered completely.
