Chicken pox can be very painful
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.
I have gone carefully through your question and understand your concern. Chicken pox can be really painful and medicines might often not provide relief. Such a condition may last for one to three weeks. You may try Motrin (Ibuprofen) alone and see if it helps. At this stage antiviral medicines will not help. Apply calamine lotion topically. Isolate her from others since it is contagious.
