For mothers that are alarmed about SMALLPOX: Always begins on face/hands...trunk last. More like bumps. Increases daily. Belladonna, Variola, Vaccininum. Illness progresses very rapidly. By 3rd day nearly entire body covered. Dangerous to treat by yourself.
For Chickenpox, Choices:
BELLADONNA, high fever with red cheeks, dry heat and covering up.
Fever subsides in a few days. This is the catching time, incubation is 3 weeks.
ARSENICUM ALB, more restless and complains of burning, 3am symptoms. fears, may have hallucinations
BRYONIA, more irritable. headache, leave me alone.
RHUS TOX. for the itch.
URTICA URENS, if Rhus does not work. (the itch stays at least two weeks or more)
ANTIMONIUM TART, if there is any chest involvment. Cough, wheezing, etc.
DULCAMARA, good for skin description of chickenpox. Dulc good for cold symptoms.
Chickenpox does not have the eyes that need a dim room like measeles. Lots of water. Do not give fruit juices. Too much sugar. Get flavored baby pedialyte to drink. Fresh fruit only.
Many tepid baths with just a LITTLE sea salt in the tub. Maybe one level tablespoon disolved in tub. Let them play. Forget the soap for first week. Pat dry. Do not reuse towels. Wash them.
They won't want much to eat at first. within a week or so the eating returns to normal. Soon the major complaint will be only the itch. I had 3 boys with CP at once. All under 6.
NEVER get Chickenpox shots!!
Also, one does not get them twice. A second bout is NOT chicken pox.

My one boy is completely covered; the other seems to be breaking out more slowly with fewer spots.
I've given Rhus Tox for the itch...and I've used a tea tree based gel directly on the spots which seems to have given extreme relief for the isolated itch.
Fortunately, loss of appetite has not been an issue (not surprising for these two!!!) and life is pretty much normal...minus the field trips up town.

Chicken pox is going around my son's school right now and I have been informed that children that received the vaccine are getting the virus just as often, and to the same degree as those that have not been vaccinated.

' I hope those of you who are anti vaccine get bit by your opinion.'
Thank you for your kind words. Next time you drive without your seat belt, I hope you get bit by your windshield. Now thats not very nice now is it!

Oh, and it is IMPOSSIBLE our child could have gotten Chicken Pox via contact w/another infected child. Our baby never leaves the house, doesn't go to day care, had no interaction with any children in the weeks prior to infection, and all of us adults are immune.
Yes, the vaccine gave our baby a full on case of Chicken Pox.
Now, I'm not suggesting it is typical for the vaccine to produce the full on infection.
However, I now understand that the MANY traditional medical web sites are LYING in their online articles that push this vaccine and claim '...varicella vaccine NEVER produces an infection...'

Best way is to find some natural home remedies on the internet to speed up the process, get rid of the itchiness, and make those blisters go away!
Try oatmeal in a bath.
Also certain oils work wonders for the skin.
Make sure to be eating healthy, fruits and vegetables, lots of water, getting rest, and bathing a lot during the day to dry out the skin and let them crust over fast.
There are ways you can speed things up and a chicken pox cure in only 3 days or less.

I am sorry for your misery with chicken pox but we have had an outbreak at school and almost everyone in my son's class has had it (vaccinated or not...they are 7)and one boy who was one of the first but only a really mild dose and now he has it again a few weeks later.
My son is just recovering from it and had a really painful cluster of blisters next to his groin with shooting pains going into his groin. He had just recovered from a nasty tick bite there so it is a weak spot. He was very miserable for 24 hours. I gave him Rhus Tox 30 and varicella nosodes from the outset and not once has he complained of itching except when I put him in an oatmeal bath but then he is very contrary! I am waiting for my daughter to get it and feel reasonable confident (although not totally) that I will be ok since I had it as a child.
Once upon a time, we thought you could only catch these diseases once. Then we tried to eradicate them with vaccines which were supposed to do the same. Now we know that the vaccines don't last forever and it seems neither does natural immunity. Are they mutating?
I guess the only thing we can do is keep our bodies as healthy as possible so they stand a fighting chance. For me that is through diet, environment and keeping as many chemicals away from us as possible. We try not to take antibiotics and excessive painkillers so hopefully one day if we really need them, they will have some effect.

cold compresses to sores, if any are infected use
calendula tincture, a few drops diluted with 3 parts
water and cover with gauze or bandages. Never give
aspirin to anyone with chicken pox, it can cause REYES syndrome.
The most common medicine is Rhus tox so you gave
a low dose which should have worn off.
If child wants you with her constantly use pulsatilla,
If child wants to be alone and not look at her
use antimonium crudum. If child is extreme about not
wanting to be looked at and really upset, use Croton tiglum,
if the main symptom is a rattling cough use antimonium tartaricum.
The way to dose is 3 pellets of 30c every 2 to 4 hours until
improvement is noticed - then stop and wait till
symptoms return. Try 3 doses max and if no effect,
choose another medicine.
