Our little girl has just had a bad case of the pox - bad in the sense that it localised on her head. She looked like a plague victim the poor thing and she’s only just turned one. Anyhow, we looked after the blisters, calamine lotion etc and she was really good about not scratching them. None seemed infected. Still, when the scabs dropped off she’s been left with loads of marks around her forehead and temple. Some of them seem fairly substantial pock-marks.
I’m wondering how miraculous are the healing properties of a 1 yo’s skin - are these on the way out already? Would be good to hear from some parents who’ve had young kids with chickenpox and how their skin fared afterwards.
Is there anything worth doing to try and encourage the scars to fade (bio-oil etc)? Or is that needlessly fretful? Interested to hear your opinions.
