chicken pox exposure in 19 m.o.Hi all. My 19 m.o. daugheter was kissing another baby on saturday, who came down with chicken pox on sunday. i'm quite sure the diagnosis is correct as this girl's mom is a public health nurse. my daighter has no sypmtoms yet- i'm just wondering if anything is advised to help this early. i have access only to a limited number of boiron homeos, as i'm in a remote (island) location- i have the 30c homeo family kit and the local drugstore has a more extensive (probably an all-in-one display) but still not huge slection of 30c single rememdies. anything else i'd have to mail order. thanks... =)sarah

Never let anyone kiss your baby or baby kiss others. I have a client who's baby has herpes because of a thoughtless aunt.
Chicken pox can begin on any part of the body, usually the trunk. It begins in a tiny blister and begins to itch. It is not known for CP to visit twice.
3 wk incubation. After fever subsides, no longer catching.
RHUS TOX and URTICA URENS would be good to have on hand. For the itch and healing. The eyes are not as critical as in measles. Keep cool, quiet and shaded only during fever. CP is quite miserable itching.
Get a supply of bandaids to try to subdue the scratching as CP makes scars. Watch face especially. The itch lotions on the market are not as good as we would wish, but stock up anyway, lotion and a bandaid, etc.
Saline bathing probably would be good for skin. Enough salt to just barely taste. Ocean is too polluted to use as therapy bathing. Too much unknown running off the island clinging around the edges.
Other remedies to have on hand for fever and chest conditions, etc.:
Small Pox always begins on the face and hands. The trunk of the body is last. The bleebs are larger and firmer bumps, not blisters. The child is very ill very quickly. Lungs involved. (good to know the difference so you are not alarmed and wondering).
Post us on the outcome?
