DoTerra Essential Oil Treatment For:
Chicken Pox is a common childhood disease typical among pre-teenage children. It is a highly contagious infection of a virus known as varicella zoster. The symptoms start as flu-like discomforts such as a fever, muscle or stomach pain, fatigue, and possibly headaches. This is followed in 1 to 4 days with a rash of small reddish spots that can be anywhere on the body and are usually uncomfortably itchy.
The spots can blister and the open sores can have the added complication of a bacterial infection. Because the virus is highly contagious the child should stay at home and those exposed should use antiviral essential oils to prevent also acquiring it.
The flu-like symptoms and itchy spots can cause discomfort but the illness is typically mild and over in a few days to a week. Older children will be affected more and those with weak immune systems may have difficulty as well.
Note: Do not use aspirin to reduce fever. Children should never be given aspirin or medications containing aspirin for chicken pox or any other viral illness because of the risk of Reye’s syndrome. This is a disorder that causes sudden and dangerous liver and brain damage. It is a very rare but of such severe complications caution must be taken.
