Chickenpox

Postby ImisMummy » Sat Jul 30, 2011 4:18 pm

Imi has chicken pox :dancing: :yahoo: Im actually quite glad as I would rather she had it now at 18 months than like me who had it at 7!

Unfortunately, although I have had them before, I now have chicken pox too!

I have already given her a bicarb bath which seems to help and am waiting on some calomin lotions from sis-in-law.

How long are we going to be infectios after the spots have started appearing?

We found homeopathic tablets Rhus Tox the best thing to take for chicken pox. Helped the spots go down, helped the itching, etc. Take regularly.

You are infectious from before the spots come out until they have all dried up and crusted over.

You can usually find homeopathic stuff in Boots or Holland & Barrat or local healthfood shops.

I hope you don't suffer too badly, and both you and Imi are over it soon.
