Suggest treatment for chicken pox

Hi, I am 19 this year, I am on my 5th day of chicken pox. None of them are drying up and there are a few blisters on my face are infected. I did not scratch it! I went to the doctor, he said those are infected because of staying too long. and it will not scar. Is it true?

Ps :// The very first blister was on my face which I did not know it was a chicken pox, all i knew was it hurts when i took shower. I thought it was a stress breakout and gave no second thought so I washed my face regularly as usual anyway, does this relate?

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Chicken pox vesicles tends to occur in succession of crops. So there can be newly emerging ones and old crusted vesicles at the same time. If one stays for long time then it can be a pimple. You can apple brilliant green on the vesicles. This is a good antiseptic for virus and bacteria.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
