My little girl is two years old and just come down with chicken pox. Neither myself nor my eldest two boys have ever had it so was wondering if u guys had any tips on how to make it more comfortable for her and how to keep scarring to a minimum. Thanks.

loose clothing might help. Try searching on the Internet for an oatmeal bath recipe. I remember sitting in one. No toys in the tub, but it was very soothing and relaxing. Also, distract her with coloring books or a favorite movie.

A bath helps ease it too but not hot just tepid and calamine lotion if you still get it but it is years since my boys were little xx
