Chicken pox

Chicken pox is a viral infection, which generally occurs between 2 and 10 years of age. It is characterised by a vesicular skin rash that spreads across the entire body. It is highly contagious and can cause severe itching (scratching can cause lesions). To soothe itching associated with chicken pox, take a hot bath using a gentle soothing cleanser, then dry skin before applying a calming product.
