Tot suffering with chicken pox, intense over nappy area, head and neck. Which cream will give maximum benefits?

Hi, my 16-month-old daughter has chicken pox . The doctor prescribed Foban cream, but said only use this with very red spots. She has quite a lot of spots in her nappy area, head and neck . Some of them have broken. Can I use Foban cream for her? The doctor also gave her Calamine Lotion. So what should I use for her to have best result? Thank you for your advice.

Chicken pox rashes will be of different stages in the body due the order of occurrence.
Some will be blisters, some broken and some healing with scars.
Use the Foban cream on intact lesions.
Calamine lotion is a moisturizer. Use it on healing and scarred lesions.
Chicken pox lesions heals with scarring. Moisturizers help in preventing scars.
