I'm sorry compo but I have to say it

... a hat?

baths run through porridge oats (put handful in sock and tie round hot tap)

baths with bicarb of soda in them

maybe some oil on his scalp?

very good stuff

I have had two with Chicken pox in the last 3 weeks, infact dd is asleep with it now.

I bought the stock of Bicarb the other day and just washed her hair with some of it to relieve the scalp

Ive been told neem oil is good for the itcheyness , not sure how easy it is to get hold of. May be a health food place ?
