Thanks for your query.

Chickenpox usually does not leave behind scars unless the lesions get infected. The ointment that you are using may not be effective. It is advisable to consult a dermatologist who may reassure you after seeing the scars. In most of the cases they disappear over time.

Wishing you all the best.
