Chicken Pox Treatment
There is no treatment in allopathic medicine for Chicken Pox , immunization of all people exposed to an infected person within 3-4 days of exposure, is the recommended course. Strict isolation and sterilization of all linens are also recommended. In case you cannot take the child to a hospital then iso late the patient and her clothes and room should be thoroughly disinfected. When the eruptions start drying, smear vaseline over the scabs. Wash her eyes with cool boric acid solution as otherwise there is smarting sensation in the eyes. To relieve the itching take 2 tablespoons soda bicarbonate and mix in a bucket of water. Immerse the child in it for 5 to 6 minutes daily. The diet should be mild and soft and salt free because salt gives rise to more Itching. Be careful the child does not scratch the spots as there is likelihood of secondary infection. Pock marks usually result from scratching the blisters. If the blister are permitted to dry of their own accord and allowed to fall off naturally, there is seldom any mark left from the disease.
Collect all the fallen scabs in a piece of paper and bury it deep inside the earth. Do not under any condition give hot things to the child like cardamoms, ginger etc. Only give her cooling things like curds, bananas, oranges etc. After recovery give her two baths witb hot water and carbolic soap before her to mix with others. Do not share eating utensils, food, smoking materials or allow others to drink after you. Use plastic utensils and paper plates. Place all paper products that you handle (including tissues) in a plastic bag for disposal. You should also keep your own supply of toilet items (including soap) that are stored away from the items used by others.
