I'm a 24 years old male and have chicken pox on Sunday. Few rashes appear till now and they aren't that much itchy. However today morning when I woke up, the back of my head becomes painful in a small area. Should I be worry? And also can I take bath? My mom told me not to touch water for 10 days.

Dear user, you can not bath till 10-15 days. Water may cause secondary infection. Chicken pox is already a viral infection and water may cause super added bacterial infection. Few homeopathic medicine will be helpful to you. 1-variolinum 200/4-6 pills tds. 2-rhus tox 200/ 4-6 pills tds. Avoid spicy and oily food, use food at normal temperature. Neither too hot nor too much cold. Drink boiled water at normal temp. Avoid any other's contact to you for his safety. Thanks.
