There is no cure for chickenpox, and the virus usually clears up by itself without any treatment. However, there are some steps you can take to ease the symptoms.
Calamine lotion.can be applied to the blisters to help dry them out and soothe the skin.
Anti histamines may be used to control severe itching
Aciclovir ideally needs to be started within 24 hours of your rash appearing. It does not cure chickenpox, but it does make the symptoms less severe.
Some of the Ayurvedic herbs such as turmeric, neem, babool, patola and vata are useful treating skin disorders. One can use them as a single herb or can use as a combination. This is one of best chicken pox remedy.
Please dont shave ? please take shower but not enough
Take care
