Chicken pox is a highly infectious disease. The only thing good about it is that it is a direct ticket to a fortnight’s paid holiday.

The strong viral disease makes small moles throughout the body and the spots may remain for a long time. Chicken pox causes heavy fever and brings weakness to even naturally strong people.

The inflicted cannot help scratching, and so it is best to keep short nails. Following the doctor’s prescription is a must. Having neem leaves nearby and in touch helps as the leaves have great herbal effect.

The calamine lotion is quite handy. The patient should have sponge washes and daily baths. He should try to be very clean to avoid further damage.

The patient gets substantially weak and at the peak, may not even support his or her weight. Intake of sugar is necessary and so raw sugarcanes and its juice are a wonderful remedy.
