Suggest medication for chicken pox

Hi doctor, I have realized that I have a minor case of Chicken Pox, while the only thing it has done to me is the itchiness [ fever is gone now ] , I still am cringing to smoke marijuana. [ which i have a medical license for]. Will it slow the process of heal if I smoke marijuana or will it benefit it by killing the itching pain all over my body??? *PS* - [ I did oatmeal baths , calamine lotion , the whole 9 yards to relieve the itch] , I haven't scratched for a few days so I guess its working but its more like my mental stability that did it for me.

Thanks for contacting HCM with your medical question.

There are no medical treatments for chicken pox. We can only treat the symptoms of which you already have done. Smoking marijuana will not change anything about the chicken pox therefore you can smoke if you need to.

Hope this answers your question. Please contact us again with your medical questions
