Thanks for query,
Now it is on verge of complete cure.
Apply soothing cream like Vaseline, caladryl lotin,coconut oil etc to make skin smooth and shiny.

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
chickenpox is due to viral infection
u should take antiviral medicine like acyclovir within 3 day of infection.
after 20 days there should not any blister as it usually resolve in 15 days
but still u have active blister ,u need to consult dermatologist and take acyclovir in standard dose
over blister apply plain antibiotic cream like fusidin twice a day
never pop or pick it as it will leave scar and it is difficult to treat .
