How to care for the skin in the three stages of Chickenpox
Chickenpox is a very common childhood infection caused by a virus called Varicella zoster.
Chickenpox has a characteristic evolution that can be divided into 3 stages:
1st stage – Initially there is the appearance of reddish pimples, associated with fever and itching.
2nd stage – Pimples turn into blisters; in addition to fever and itching, the child feels a burning sensation.
3rd phase – Lastly, scabs appear and itching increases.
Usually, chickenpox symptoms are mild in children; however, it causes great discomfort, because during all stages the child will feel itchy. Also, if they scratch the itch, in addition to aggravating the infection, they may get scarring or spots.
Therefore, it is imperative to hydrate your baby’s skin, as well as using suitable products while bathing that restore skin balance and soothes the symptoms.
