K DD1 got over chickenpox about 5 days ago and as I mentioned in another thead just waiting now for DD2 to get it and OMG she hasn't half got it
so much worse than DD1. Anyways doing the normal things expample... camamile lotion and piriton but is there really nothing else that can help?? is there definetly nothing thats been invented over the years?? (sorry just desperate now)
also does anyone know if it's possible for children to get the spots in their mouths or throat?? DD2 sounds very hourse and has what looks like a wee blister on the inside of her lip...
Sorry to hear that dd2 has got it worse....miserable isn't it. DS1 and ds2 are just getting over it and ds2 was so much worse than ds1. I think that it is possible to get spots in the mouth, I'm sure I noticed some in both of their mouths.
We did the piriton and calomine, and Eurax for spots. Also used Calpol.
Not much in the way of advice but you're not alone.
megandsoph, what a nightmare for you all. yes, they can get it in mouths and throats, and ears and everywhere else! Grim isnt it? I'm sure you're doing it but paracetamol/ibuprofen (can use both together) for any fever, pain, etc will also help. Cool baths sometimes helps with the itching. Personally I find calomine makes itching worse as dries the skin out and if thats so try using plain moisturisier such as E45. damp cloths laid on itchy bits at night will help. Hang on in there xx
Oh poor thing! My ds having got it a bit under a fortnight ago, my dd has come down with it today. At least the waiting is over. It is starting quite slowly with dd but I have a feeling it'll rev up soon. What fun!
I really do appreciate everyones advice,
shes just gone up now phewwwwww .
does anyone actually know why they recommend the camomile lotion, as I agree with the other MNetters's who say it tends to make the spots more itchy so I have just experimented and lathered vasaline on (hope it works)as tipex mentioned e45.
Aimsmum thank the high heavens DD's feet are clear that must of been absolutly awful for you and your DD
