My 13 month-old ds has been exposed (intentionally) to chicken pox that another MDC mama's 13 month-old dd has. He is nursing well still but gets a lot of solids too. He's a big healthy guy... 25 1/2 lbs, nurses/eats well, etc. I've read in various threads and websites (including <a href="http:/m/butler11.html" target="_blank">http://www.*********/m/butler11.html</a> ) about Vitamin A and C being important. Some also say EFA's. Others add herbs and homeopathy. I started him on a natural multivitamin which contains A and C but other than that haven't done anything. Does anyone have any advice?<br><br>
Also, does anyone know if by nursing him (I had it as a child) , he will have a milder case? My dh had a terrible case of it as a child but he wasn't breastfed either and had/has excema which is thought to exacerbate it.<br><br>
Thanks for any help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

BFing can help, especially since you have built up the antibodies to it. The multi is a good asset. Thumbs up on that. Try to ensure the most hydration possible. A good topical for the blisters is colloidal silver. You may want to get some at a local health food store or online. Here's a link <a href="http://www.doctorstrust.com/search.html?query=colloidal+silver" target="_blank">http://www.doctorstrust.com/search.h...lloidal+silver</a><br>
The other thing you may want to try is olive leaf extract and here's the link for that. <a href="http://www.doctorstrust.com/search.html?class=Olive+Leaf&concern=By+Health+Concern...&brand=By+Brand...&gtse=goog&gtkw=olive%20leaf%20extract&utm_id=GG1&gclid=CNjCx6Kw0oMCFSBSGgodfBhT8Q" target="_blank">http://www.doctorstrust.com/search.h...FSBSGgodfBhT8Q</a>

Yes I read this -- see my OP above which references the same link. Great information which I've read twice. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My questions in my OP are still questions to me though, especially in terms of, given the universe of things I *could* do, which ones have other mamas found effective or helpful. Also the breastfeeding question. Thanks!
