usually does not need any treatment. its a viral disease and subside in
about 10 days. just need paracetamol for fever and local application of
calamin lotion for soothing effect. but better consult local doctor to
confirm chicken pox. in case of complications need antibiotics. good
healthy diet and rest and good hydration help for early recovery.
