Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The spots left by chicken pox are usually deep seated in the skin. You can try the lotion for your satisfaction but there is little these lotions and creams can do. These spots will fade away with time. May even take years to fade away completely.

I believe my son has Chicken Pox , but someone has told me that a child he may have been in contact with has hand, foot and mouth -- how do I tell the difference? He has spots in his scalp, on his neck, in his mouth -- well pretty much all over his body. They start as a red spot, then seem to turn into blisters, and now the first ones(which appeared on sunday)have gone from being clear to cloudy? But I can t seem to find information to distinguish the two? Help please!
