    My 6 year old son has just caught the chickenpox and my 16 month old daughter has also been in contact with other kids who have had the its only a matter of time before she breaks out too! The reason for my post is to prepare for the cant expect a 16 month old to not scratch so how do i go about protecting her little perfect body from infection/scarring? Any advice to prepare would be great!

    Lots & lots of camomile lotion! my daughter was about the same age when she caught chickenpox from her older brother. Luckily she hasn't got any scars. Good luck!

    I am not sure about this post can you prepare for chickenpox?

    I had the same problem! I used tube-grip bandages on his hands and feet as hos scratching was very bad!
    Keeping the infected area cool also helped.

    Well for a 16 month old I would say scratch-mits!
