Chickenpox usually starts with a rash, which blisters and forms pustules, turning to scabs later as the pustules heal. It is a common childhood illness, that usually appears in quite a mild form in young children. Although very infectious and quite uncomfortable, it is seldom serious.
The disease is contagious until all the pox have turned to scabs.
Chickenpox has been treated by homeopathy. Chickenpox requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
