yes sheeba. can I bath my baby daily...?? if yes, how many times a day...??
can I give her water...??

Sheeba Vijesh

no do not bathe... spread neem leaves on her bed and once in a while tie a bunch of leaves tgether, and lightly brush very gently, head to toe... it will relieve itching...do not burst the blisters... if rash spreads to eyes, or skin becomes very inflammed, immediately see a doctor... till six months only bm is advised... didnt you see a paed. and seek advise on the condition? keep a tab on thr fever also... fever in early months is to be taken very seriously...

I had a talk with pediac... he told me to wash her with j&j top to toe eveyday

Sheeba Vijesh

pravallika, m sorry, in the article also it says to bathe... i said with the view that normally we say not to bathe during chicken pox... when i was a kid i had got...and at that time, bathing was done after the blisters went down... if your paed. says so, you should follow his instructions ☺

Pravallika Angajala
