Mild hysteria over
Yes there has been an outbreak of chicken pox in the household and yes it did momentarily send me a little strange yesterday,what with all the general pressure, but all is well now. We were wondering if my son would ever get it, and at nearly nine it's best he gets it out of the way now. I found the ultimate in wacky remedies on the internet yesterday. Bathing in oatmeal with added bicarbonate of soda. If anyone can explain why this works, it would satisfy my curiosity. But it really does seem to work. Soothes itching and lessens redness. Makes a bloody mess of the bathroom though.
