As the title says I have chicken pox :o( Have been feeling crap from Sunday - aching and freezing cold and in the mornings I would be weak and feeling sick I hadn't the energy to shower yesterday. SO this morning I had 3 spots on my belly and went to the doc.. So off work now for a week.. Plus I have loads of spots now they are coming rapidly :o(...

Oh nooooooooo! You poor thing :o( I still remember the horrible itch from when I had them. Stock up on Calomine or something to cool & sooth the itch a bit. Hope you feel better soon :action32

Ouch, try Pox Clin as an alternative to Calomine Lotion, it's a light mousse that's abssorbed very quickly!! Hope you feel better soon..

Oh no! I had these in April, I got them on my honeymoon actually! They're not much fun at all and they are very itchy. THough I will say if you've had the aching and fever and not feeling well then that will go soon, that's usually at the start so that feeling yacky is almost over. Sudocrem at night is good, as is a cold compress and also the antihistamine Piriton. It's over the counter adn helps ENORMOUSLY with the itch. The itch/horriblness was gone for me in about...five days.

They said they would try and order it in for me this evening [quote="Smileykaz":3s44s6wz]Oh no! I had these in April, I got them on my honeymoon actually!
