Hey all,

 

My 9 month old son has chicken pox and I am looking for suggestions for natural treatments to help them go away sooner, hurt less or not leave scars? I know coconut oil is antiviral so I am going to start rubbing that all over his spots and giving him an oatmeal bath in the morning when he wakes up but what else will help? TIA.

I've never dealt with chickenpox but what about breastmilk on the lesions?  Seems like it must be soothing..

 

Hope your little one feels better soon.
