    Home Remedies For chicken pox Marks

    chicken pox is a viral infection, very common and highly contagious disease, newborns and adults may experience more severe symptoms then children who are at risk before the age of ten. Vaccinations have reduced its incidence. The symptoms for chicken pox do not appear until the infectious stage has begun these are fever, fatigue, itchy rash, loss of appetite. We have here some very powerful home remedies for chicken pox.

    This virus is transmitted by air (coughing or sneezing) or physical contact with a sick person, one or two days later a pimple like eruptions appear on the body they are filled with fluid and look like blisters, then they crust over. During this period itching can be very annoying but scratching them can lead to infection and scarring.

    Most of us are infected with this disease ones in our lives, after the fist exposure to the virus, the body builds up immunity in the form of antibodies that recognize the disease and kills the virus before it can infect us again.

    chicken pox normally starts and finishes in about two weeks but people with weak immune systems or newborns can have very serious complications, if infected prenatally there is a risk of birth defects.

    Home Remedies to Reduce Chicken Pox Scars


    Besides these preventive measures, you can also follow a few home remedies to prevent and reduce the appearance of scars. Apply sandalwood oil on the blisters from the first day of their appearance till the day that the scabs fall off on their own. This soothes the skin and prevents itching.

    Massaging the skin with vitamin E oil is also useful in speeding up the natural healing process. You must apply this oil twice every day in order to make the scars disappear faster.


    For another remedy, use a few cloves of raw garlic to rub the area around the scars. The strong chemicals in the juice of garlic help remove scars naturally. Alternatively, use a slice of fresh lemon to massage your skin with, as the acidic nature of its juice heals scarred skin and leaves it looking smoother and lighter. Once the scabs fall off, apply cucumber juice on the scars daily for at least 15 minutes. Then wash it away with cold water. You could also apply honey on the scars every night before going to bed and wash it away the next morning with water. Honey tones up the skin naturally and gives it a firmer, smoother texture.

    Eating natural sources of vitamin K like spinach, broccoli, cabbage, turnip, lean meats and dairy products is useful for treating chicken pox scars, as this vitamin quickens the natural healing process of the skin. It is also necessary to stay away from carbonated and artificially sweetened drinks and beverages.
