Chickenpox is very common among kids. It is generally caused by a virus called Varicella-Zoster which is highly communicable by air, or through the mucus, saliva, or from blisters of someone infected with chickenpox. Children with chickenpox are usually considered contagious from the first or second day before the rash shows up until the time that the chickenpox blisters completely dry up.

Every Mother Should Know These Tips And Natural Home Remedies To Stop Bed-Wetting In Children

Below are some homemade remedies to get rid of chickenpox scars

1. Honey
Honey can easily cure chickenpox irritation because of all the natural sugars it contains. By applying it on the body of your child, it will soothe his skin of all the rashes, itching, and blisters. Leave it on for some time and wash it off. Repeat this a few times a day.

2. Vitamin D
Vitamins are said to benefit children with chickenpox. They include Vitamin A, B-12, D, E, and K. The properties of Vitamin A and beta carotene help stave viral infections. Vitamin B-12 provides the necessary relief to get over the itchy feeling. Vitamins D, E, and K help absorb Vitamins B-12 and A and other nutritional supplements.

3. Aloe Vera
A natural healer, aloe vera is also antiviral and anti-inflammatory in nature. It moisturizes the skin and heals it to prevent scarring. To use it, cut open a leaf of this herb and apply its gel directly on the blisters. Let the skin take everything in and properly dry up. This should be repeated regularly until it clears.

4. Ginger Bath
Giving your child a ginger bath also helps to get rid of chickenpox. To give your child a ginger bath, add about half a cup of ginger powder or fresh ginger pieces to a bathtub of warm water. Properly mix it and take your child to sit in the mix for at least 30 minutes or till the water turns cold. Use a dry towel and gently pat your child’s body. You can also boil a cup of water and add one teaspoon of crushed or diced ginger root. Reduce the heat and let it boil for a few minutes. Take it out of the fire and separate the shaft from the liquid and serve in a tablespoon of honey and lime juice each. It should be taken a few times a day to prevent further incidents of chickenpox.
