My 7 y.o. is home w/ pox this week. He feels fine but is miserable with itching. Any home remedies that anyone can recommend that really work? I've googled it and found countless ones... just want to narrow it down with personal experience.
Hi all! I have 3 girls (12, 9 and 4). We moved from WA state 4 years ago and we visited a chicken pox party a couple years before we left so my older 2 have had chicken pox. I'm looking for something similar for my 4 yo. We live in Mason, OH, but can travel if need be! I find the amount of...
