alanas got them
Dont use calamine lotion it makes it itch more, the best thing to do it use lots of moisturiser. e45 or something like that emolient.
i only had chicken pox when i was 25!! and the docotr said calamine is the worst thing to use.
shes already got calamine on her
it will soothe at first but then it dries to a crust and makes the itching worse.
Believe me moisturiser was very soothing as it doesn't dry but gets absorbed.
Our doctor wants calamine banned lol!!
well our doctor told us to use it , so i think i will stick with that
and when i had them , calamine helped alot
well she loved putting calamine on , she got really excited
we gave her a yoghurt to eat and turned round and she had rubbed it all over her body
also biocarbinate of soda in a bath really soothes it
Aww bless her .. did she actually eat any of it !!
she was more interested in rubbing it in to her belly
You can get a calamine cream that is more moisturising if that helps
other than that good luck
Probably because its is soothing and will keep the skin supple rather than drying it out.
for christ sake , lighten up woman
Aw bless her ! who did she catch them from?
my sisters kid i think
I've been told not to use calamine too. My friends 14 month old has them and her doctor also said to avoid it. He said to take lots of lukewarm baths, and use loads of moisturiser.
If the calamine is working on Alana, then brilliant, but just be prepared that it may drive her mad when it's completely dry, and get her in the bath if it does. I can guarantee it'll help.
yeah if it bothers her then we will stop using it , but it helped her alot and shes gone to sleep now
my poor baby
Glad i'm not the only one who has been told that!! was starting to feel a bit like a freak! Emolient baths were bliss for me, but then again i ad chcicken pox in the two hottest weeks of the summer, i was sat up at 1am crying coz i itched sooo much! i went throught 2 litre pots of e45 moisturiser and 2 pots of emolient baths!!
Probably why i get het up when i see people using Calamine..sorry i just remember from my experience! but it is supposed to be milder when young.
Just remember, it really is better while they are young.
My ex-husband caught them from Kayleigh in his mid-twenties, and was really really poorly. He had them in places I don't want to mention!
I sympathise!! i had them every where on my head, mouth and torso (and other places! . but nothing on my legs or lower arms..!
