My three year old boy started having symptoms yesterday, and now he's breaking out with the pox papules-some are already bursting. I've forgotten how I handled it when his older brothers, now in their 20's, got it when they were little boys. He's happily playing between bouts of crankiness and complaining of pains in different places-his tummy, legs, neck, tushie. I'm not too worried because he is so healthy otherwise-just want to make him as comfortable as possible. He's running around in just a diaper for now-too uncomfortable for clothes, which he hates anyway! If anyone can help, I'd like some other opinions as to handle this in as natural a way as possible.
