What can I do to relieve the itch of chicken pox?

Itchy and Scratchy Pox

Review with your doctor, over the phone, his/her recommendations for pain, irritability, itching, and scratching due to chicken pox. Expect to hear Tylenol/Advil for fever, Calamine lotion for spot itch, and possibly an oral antihistamine (e.g. Benadryl for kids) for overall and internal irritation relief.
