Hi Dear

Welcome to the board of health care magic.

Usually fever in chicken pox subsides with in one week after the intial phase.

If fever is persisting during the scab shedding phase then one should be investigated to rule out other concurrent infection the body (CBC. ESR TYPHI DOT TEST.MALARIA ANTIGEN,URINE ROUTINE EXAMINATION AND CXR)

Then according to the investigation report one should be treated for the fever.

Hope your query is answered with your satisfaction.
