H has got chicken pox!

So for the next few days we’ll be inside, we’re well stocked up on calamine lotion, itchy creams, oats and muslins and antihistamine syrup, as well as the Calpol and Nurofen… has your child had chicken pox? What do you feel helped things along? I know it takes its course, but any good recommendations you can pass on please?

(and for the record, she’s covered in spots but behaving like there’s nothing wrong – bounding around and asking if she can go to her friends houses, you wouldn’t think she was ill!!)
