my daughter has chicken pox at the moment, have your children had this? we are using camomile lotion aswell as a cream to treat the itching, was there anything else you used to treat your child?

bless her heart , they make them miserable. i know u are going to think this sounds wierd but it really does work. get some prepration h & dab some on every place she has them & it will dry them up. bet she's like my youngest was when he had them. he told me he didn't like them "pops". hope she gets to feeling better .

Alot of baths in baking soda! I went through boxes of it when my kids had chicken pox . Baking soda baths really help.

At the risk of sounding a little crazy we did the oatmeal bath thing and let her play dot - to - dot with washable markers - The oatmeal helped with the itching and the markers were a great distraction! Please don't turn me in to the crazy Mom police!
