Which cream is best?

DS has started to come out in C'Pox. After research on here (and expecting it because he'd been unwell and Nursery has it) I've stocked up on Poxclin Mousse and Eurax lotion. Is one considered better than the other? Can they both be used or just one? Thank you.

I found the best thing was a nice cool bath with some bicarb in it. Seemed to be the only time they got some relief from the itching.

I hope your DS doesn't get it too badly.

Thank you, will try that. I'm now confused about whether he actually has it or not ??!? He's had the pre-cold, lack of appetite, grumpiness, etc (combined with a lot of exposure at Nursery) but yday there was literally one spot on his leg which did look C'Pox like. Today that spot has faded a lot and there's no sign of any others (yet). How long in people's experience can it take for them to come out ?? shock
