Varicella : Varicella zoster virus

Also known as chickenpox, Chickenpox generally resolves within a week or two without treatment. There is no cure, but a vaccine can prevent it. The following may help prevent scratching: keeping fingernails clean and as short as possible; placing mittens or even socks over a child's hands when they go to sleep, so that any attempt at scratching during the night does not cut the skin; applying calamine lotion or having an oatmeal bath to reduce itching; wearing loose clothing.
