    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!

    I'm glad someone posted about this. My friends child just broke out in chicken pox and the day she noticed the spots my 21 month old was also player with her child. How long would it take for my lo to break out in spots if he was to have caught it? X
