Anyone have any suggestions on how I get speed up getting rid of chickenpox scabs. Caught chickenpox on Monday but I'm lucky in that they're all drying up now.Unfortunately my face and neck have suffered the most and are in a really really awful state. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Don't pick them! I don't think there's alot you can do about scabs, they are protecting the wounds underneith to give the skin time to heal. I don't know if bio oil can help when the scabs fall off, you could try that, it may help the redness/dryness underneith the scabs.
Thanks Fluffy, I've asked dh to get me some bio oil- i've only been in the house since Monday and it's driving me mad already. I've got a 3 year old ds and it will be hard going if we're housebound for another week
