I have a 7 year old on the couch that is just covered in chicken pox... we were using some aveeno calamine + antihistamine lotion that helped a lot, but it was a really small bottle and we ran out right around bed time. She just woke up 20 minutes ago MISERABLE and I stuck her in an oatmeal bath because I can't think of anything else. I can't run out to the store, I'm a single mom with 2 other sleeping kids... is there anything else I can do?? Do we just suffer through the night till I can get something in the morning? I have a 10mg claritin but I don't want to give it to her as we were using the lotion that had antihistamine in it already.

Did the oatmeal bath work?


Baking soda bath is another one to try.





It's a Delight-Filled Life.
