What Is Chicken Pox?
Chicken pox is a
common childhood viral illness. Many cases are mild; however,
those that are uncomfortable can often be helped with
homeopathy. Fatigue and low fever typically begin ten days to
three weeks from the time of exposure. A flat red rash comes
out, transforms into pimples, then develops into blisters that
eventually break and harden into itchy crusts. If fever is very
high and persistent, or if a person seems to be extremely ill,
consult a licensed physician.
