Hi
Thanks for posting your query on HCM
I have read and undewrstood your concern.Sorry to hear your are suffering from chicken pox.
Chicken pox is caused by varicella-zoster virus.Being a viral infection, symptomatic treatment may be enough.However, antiviral drugs like aciclovir may be used to limit the severity of symptoms and make your body more likely to heal faster.I will advise you try the following:
-Stay home
-Calamine lotion and colloidal oatmeal baths may help relieve itching and protec your skin.
-If fever, take acetaminophen
I will also advise you to see the Doctor for examination to confirm diagnosis as there are other skin conditions that may have a similar presentation.
Hope this will help.You may write back if more concerns
Wish you a speedy recovery
