Health Tip: Coping With Chickenpox
(HealthDay News) -- What can you do if you get chickenpox -- besides scratch?
The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests:
Keep the room cool, as heat can make itchy skin worse. Put a cool, damp compress on the itchiest spots.
Keep fingernails trimmed short so you don't break the skin if you do scratch.
Soak in a lukewarm oatmeal bath.
Apply calamine lotion.
