Chicken pox...how long do they keep coming?

On day 4, maybe 5, for my little boy. So many more new spots have come today and I'm starting to get a little worried.
I read that they usually take 3 days to come out which is obviously not true our case.

Any tips on what to put on, please? He's crying when I apply virasooth and giving him an oat bath once a day, plus piriton. Thanks!

New spots every day for up to 5 days is normal. Try Poxclin on them.

My daughter had about 5-7 days of spots emerging she was covered!

Yes, about 5 days of new spots for us too. Poxclin was the best stuff for us.

It's horrible eh? Your doing pretty much all you can. I found the virasoothe really good. Also used calamine cream as opposed to the lotion which was also good. And it's good for helping to reduce scars!
