DD (20 months) may have chicken pox (nursery called to say they have found one blistery type spot on her tummy).

I would like to go out and buy whatever creams/concoctions you mums say are worth buying.

Please can you advise what I need.

We bought virasoothe - about £9 - but DD said it stung her so we ended up using calamine instead -£1!
It had the advantage of being slightly pink so you can see the new spots coming up. However, DD wasn't bothered by her spots itching, I was just trying to dry them up quicker and reduce scarring. They probably hurt more now they've scabbed over.

Liquid piriton was good for us.
