Infectious Diseases Specialist Dr. Nicita's  Response
Here are things that you should try: Avoid scratching the itchy areas. Keep fingernails short to avoid damaging the skin from scratching. Wear cool, light, loose bedclothes. Avoid wearing rough clothing, particularly wool, over an itchy area. Try over-the-counter oral antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl). Medications that fight the chickenpox virus are available but not given to everyone. To work well, the medicine usually must be started within the first 24 hours of the rash. It is not useful in your case now.
