If you or a loved one does get chickenpox, the CDC has this advice:
- Use calamine lotion and a cool bath to relieve itching.
- Avoid scratching, which can trigger infection.
- Keep fingernails trimmed short to help curtail scratching.
- Do not use aspirin products to relieve fever from chickenpox. Instead, use a non-aspirin medication, such as acetaminophen.
For advice on other treatment options for chickenpox, see your doctor.
