I was told that "Chicken pops" it´s a virus. So there´s not much you can do about it. My grandmother use to have a lot of secret recepies that worked for allmoast everything. So I thought maybe anybody knows what to do when a kid has this. Does anybody has a suggestion? Thanks a lot.

Chicken Pops or Chicken fox, there's nothing you can do about it as it heals after a week or two. All you need to do is avoiding the Chicken Pox virus from contaminating those in the family, who were haven't caught the disease yet. Most of it's causes are due to low body resistance and vitamins, so people should take good foods that can help them from having these diseases. It is just normal, just don't try to pinch them or else their gonna leave some nasty scars and keloids..

Chicken Fox is a viral infection and a contagious skin disease. This is very harmful to other members of the family. This is 7 days without treatment needed. Just don't let him/her eat eggs, chicken, and other fishy foods. Don't let him/her out of the bedroom to be safe. Give him/her fruit juice. Monitor his/her fever. Just give Paracetamol medicines every 4 hours if needed. During my time i am not allowed to take a bath not until i fully recover and no electric fan. I am more on water to drink. Calamine lotion will help to ease the itching problem. There will be scars left when recovered just use cebo de macho.

Both of our kids had chicken pox. We used lotion to soothe the itching and put gloves on their hands at night so if they scratch while they're sleeping, it wouldn't actually scratch the pox. If they scratch it will make a permanent scar. The gloves we used are the type you would normally see people wear (in old movies) when they dress up for church. They're satiny

Calamine lotion to soothe the itching. Neem leaves are good too for the itching. You have to take a group of the leaves and stroke. It's an antiseptic too. Have food that will cool your body. othing else you can do. But there is a vaccine available. It has to be taken BEFORE one catches the "Chicken pox" virus. My husband and son had it 2 years back and it wasn't as bad as I thought.

I suppose yo could make sure the child gets the "Chicken Pox" vaccine before they are exposed to the virus. If that's not an option and they do get the Chicken Pox then all you can do is keep them comfortable and keep an eye on them. Oatmeal baths and Calamine lotion will help some, watch for fevers and difficulty breathing.

Benadryl and Aveeno baths - Aveeno is oatmeal baths..but it does not get into the ears, mouth etc..hence the benadryl for the itching. Plus benadryl will help a kid with chicken pocks sleep a bit more. Also, make sure you kid stays hydrated and do not take them out, figuring that all kids will get them anyhow so no big deal. Keep them home and treat them as you would anyother sickness
