DSis worried as her daughter has chickenpox but it particularly bad around her private bits and bobs. Really really bothering her with itching and sore. Any cooling suggestions of what dsis can put on for her??

Porridge oats in a sock. Pop it and her in the bath. Fab for soothing the itch (though rather messy)

'lady bits'? hmm

Is it like 1935 or something?

Moondog - ROFL that's what I call them - my lady bits and lady garden. Much nice than cunt or twat imo hmm

Poxclin was good for my DD - sell it in Boots.

Thanks Sassy

Ewe - what is that? A cream?

I was in france when my DD got chicken pox at 3. She was a nightmare with sores everywhere. They gave me a spray disinfectant "biseptine" and a anti-itch cream "P.O. 12". I know in england they don't give anything, but ask your pharmacist they might have them over the counter. What was important was to clean her bits after each toilet trip with fresh water and pat dry, it will last a few days though as they dry quite quickly. No bath untill she feels better, it will make it worse.
And absolutely no nurofen with chicken pox only calpol

Mamaloco - why no nurofen?

Ewe Thu 22-Oct-09 16:14:36

It's a mousse, here is a link about it.

My DD had dreadful spots on and in her niff naffs. My GP told me get her in the bath everytime she needed a wee - was the only way she'd go as it really stung.

I don't follow that you have to say 'cunt'. grin
How about vulva or vagina (althoguh these are of course vile sounding words too).

Because in very rare cases chicken pox may induced very serious health issues and any kind of AINS (nurofen, aspirin...) will make it worse

Moondog - obsession with what to call bits. Useful discussion but on another thread. Am trying to help Dsis.

Auntyspan - that's a good idea weeing in bath (remember doing that after DS2 born!!!!)

Snort at moondog's reaction to niff naffs grin

Serosly the porridge oats are the bizz

Sassy - did the porridge oats with DS1 - thought it worked a treat but he didn't have crevices full of spots. Although he did have one right on the end of his winkler. Bless him.
