i have chicken pox too. currently I am on my third day since the pustules appeared. Irecommend you to take acyclovir 800 mg. 5 times a day, you need to consult your doctor first before taking this because it is prescription. The medication will shorten the course of the chicken pox. you can also try and use Aveeno oat bath which can be purchased at drug stores. get plenty of rest. don't take any aspirin containing medications because they are associated with incidence of Reye's Syndrome. Hope my tips will help you.
