Chicken Pox Relief

My 2 boys are just blistering up with the chicken pox. Any helpful advice or directions to find more help?????

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
CHICKENPOX: little moist blisters beginning on trunk of body. When broken, weeps/itches. Fever, uncomfortable. Thirsty, misery. Then into a regular itch and skin misery.

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.

Thanks so much Sabra.

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.

Thanks again,

You are most welcome. Glad it is going well.

****YOU CAN GET CHICKEN POX TWICE*** comment that a "second bout is not chicken pox" is not always correct. People with compromised immune systems, taking certain treatments can get two or more break outs of Chicken pox. Also, a mild first case, can (and often does) leave a child open for a second break out. My three boys all had 2 break outs, one mild the 2nd full blown. My 6 year old has had three cases, one mild and two full blown. Two cases of chicken pox means call your Dr for advice.

My son just finished with his Chicken Pox...at the first sign of the blisters, which I thought were warts at first..but soon realized after the 4th one popped up that they were actually Chicken Pox...I administered Rhus Toxicodendron 5 ch every 2 hours. He continued to play normally. Individually dabs of Eosine lotion on each pox dries them up faster. And rubbing a Homeopathic cream for itching, with calendula and Chamomile, relieves the intensity of itching, and for the larger pox, you can apply individually, a herpes cream (zovirax) for the pain. By the next morning he only had a total of about 40-50 pox only on the torso and a few on legs, none on the face. Rhus Tox. was then administered 3 times a day. By the 2nd day the itching and eruptions stopped, and so did I stop the remedy.

Lets see here. The chicenpox vaccine is manufactured in a natural process...WITH NO PRESERVATIVES. Vaccines have not had mercuricm in them for nearly a decade. I am 40 years old and I have a terrible case of chickenpox. I am also a nurse. My mother Tried to expose me a child to no avail. The risks of dying from an adult case of chickenpox are nearly 1000 times greater than even having a mild side effect fromt he naturally occuring preservative free vaccine. The vaccine has an 90% rate of granting total immunity and most others get partial immunity which greatly reduces the intensity of the diesease. RIght now I have tears in my eyes for not getting vaccinated. When I worked in intensive care I took care of a 45 year old father of 3 who contracted chickenpox form his child. He lives in a nursing home now becuase of viral encephalitis from chickenpox. My physician says his office has administered several hundred doses of the vaccine with 0 complications. he has seen around 15 adults with chickenpox 1 of which died and 5 of which ended up Hospitalized and all of which lost at least 10 days of work. You do the math of which is safer. I hope those of you who are anti vaccine get bit by your opinion.

Just wanted to add my 'two cents'

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.

paednoch, my opinion is that society would be healthier if young children were allowed to develop a natural immunity. If there is a basis for chickenpox vaccination, it would be older children or adults who managed to miss the disease as a youngster, not for kids.

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!

Well, my twelve year old got the chicken pox vaccination a few years back. Against my wishes I may add and he has a SEVERE case of chicken pox! It's too bad I can't post a picture to verify my statement and show just how miserable he is. My ten year old had the chicken pox two weeks prior, didn't get the vaccination, and his chicken pox were the norm. Go figure. Say what you will about the allopath way and justify as much as you want about how good vaccinations are. I'll be one of the first to tell you where to take your statement and your stupid ideas. The medical staff are taught by what the pharmaceuticals want them to know and that's how to administer DRUGS! It's all about the money, not the health of people. Nutrition, Nutrition, Nutrition and until the allopaths get that through their heads, more people will get sick and die the allopath way! By the way, I was pursuing a nursing career and was disgusted with what was taught. What a bunch of MORONS. If the medical staff truly want to HELP, they need to educate themselves better.

At the insistence of our (traditional medicine trained) pediatrician, our one-year old baby girl received the varicella vaccine. Six days later she had a FULL blown case of Chicken Pox. We are talking hundreds of pox spots. Then the pediatrician finally admits the vaccine can 'sometimes' create the infection it is intended to prevent! Estimates are AT LEAST 1/25 vaccinations produce the infection. Now they tell us.
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...'

I'd stay away from drugs or lotions.

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.

To Paedenoch: You are right there is no thiomersal in the chicken pox vaccine but the CDC website says that it is still used for multiple vaccines.

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.

I gave my 12 year old Rhus at the first signs of rash (Friday morning). Now it is Saturday evening. Unfortunately, in my haste to respond to her panic, I gave her a dose of 3 pills x 30 C. Her blisters are extensive, she screams with pain, the rash is EVERYWHERE and very thick, in patches some places. Do you think the extreme symptoms are because of overdosing? We can not find relief and she is at her wits' end. Onlyhelp is when she first gets into the hot oatmeal bath. My mother license should be revoked.

My acute book says besides oatmeal bath, apply
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.
