Hi my dd has chicken pox and the usual calamine doesnt seem to ease her itching. Somebody mentioned a gel that you can get that is more effective does anybody know what the name of it is please? :-)

I also used aveeno shower oil on mine in the bath when they had it and the aveeno moisturiser. It really eased them too. Hope dd is ok soon xx

Eurax cream is good too. Plus you can give piriton. And bicarb and oatmeal baths...
Hope she's better soon.

My DD has just got over chickenpox and now my DS has it. It is awful i will be glad when this is over, my DS has quite a few on his face and he keeps rubbing off the scabs in bed. Anyway the things i have been using are
Bicarb bath twice a day - this seems to really help ease the itching
Calamine and Aquaoues cream, this goes on really nicely and seems to ease to
Piriton syrup esp at bedtime
Eurex cream great esp if they seem to have a particular itchy area

Hope this helps, if you find anything else, let me know. x

We used virasoothe too - expensive but brilliant, and far less messy than calamine lotion!

Thankyou all for your replies they have been so helpful. DD is my only child so all this is new to me. I hope that your little ones feel better soon :-)
