You have not mentioned your age and sex and the skin colour. Usually Chicken will Not leave Black coloured Spots. Its advisable to show to a skin specialist. There are several creams/gels available, but which one to use cant be told without examination.

Welcome to healthcare magic
Chicken pox lesions can itch during the healing phase. But nothing prevents you from having another skin disease like fungal infection even though you are suffering from chicken pox. So as dermatology is predominantly a visual field of medicine I won't be able...

My wife is 29 years old and has never had the Chicken Pox. When she was younger, she received two Chicken Pox vaccines, and has never had an outbreak. We are supposed to be seeing a friend from out of town and her 3 daughters, but one of them has just contracted Chicken Pox. The other 2 are not showing symptoms yet.

Can you give us an idea about how much of a risk it would be for my wife to be around our friend and her 2 other daughters (not the one with Chicken Pox)? There is a chance that my wife might be in a very early stage of pregnancy, so we are trying to assess risk factors and how likely it would be for my wife to catch the Chicken Pox at this point. We aren't completely sure how the virus would be transmitted between carriers, etc. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
