Chickenpox is a common childhood illness with symptoms of spots appearing on the face and chest, then spreading to other parts of the body. Children will often display behavioural changes a few days before the spots appear and Chickenpox should clear up within a week. Children should be kept home from nursery or school until the spots have passed the blister stage and have all scabbed over, at which point your child will no longer be infectious. Pain relief solutions can be administered as long as they are paracetamol based. It is best to avoid anti-inflamatory medicine such as ibuprofen. Cooling gels and creams can also be applied to the skin to soothe the discomfort of itching. Try to keep your child from scratching the spots as this can lead to scarring. If you are concerned about the health of your child you should always consult a healthcare professional.
