My son has chicken pox and I read that Sodium Ascorbate can help him.

I just don't know what the dosage should be.  

My little guy is 7yrs old and a little over 60lbs.

I personally would just let it run its course. Rest, eat well, and maybe take some multi-vitamin. Hopefully he gets a life long immunity!
