Hi Amanda, Thanks for posting in HCM. I understand your concern. Chickenpox used to be a common childhood illness, especially in kids under age 12. It is a highly contagious disorder caused by the varicella-zoster virus. An infected child should preferably be isolated and stay home until the rash is gone. It is a self limiting viral disease and offers immunity once it is contacted with. However, supportive care is necessary for the lesions it causes. The following measures needs to be taken: 1. Administration of Paracetamol for fever. 2. Application of calamine lotion on the lesions. 3. Cutting the nails short or wearing gloves may prevent scratching and minimize the risk of secondary infections. Maintenance of good personal hygiene is very important. Gradually, the lesions would reduce in severity and dries up and subsides completely. For lesions around the eyes, it would be better to get examined by an Opthalmologist for opinion and management. Hope the information provided would be helpful. All the best.
