Natural Remedies To Fade Chickenpox Marks
Chickenpox or chicken pox is one of the common juvenile diseases characterized by numerous fluid-filled blisters. This airborne disease caused by a virus named ‘varicella-zoster’ occurs in adults also. The most disastrous part of the disease is the ugly marks or scars it leaves on the victim’s face and body.
These pimples will turn into vesicles and will dry up with a brown crust on them. Chickenpox in adults will leave darker and deeper spots and scars. But the good news is that the chickenpox scars will disappear after a few days, if proper care is taken. There are rare cases when these scars become permanent. It is really unsettling to see the skin, especially the facial skin, covered with spots and marks. There are a lot of herbal/natural remedies to erase these marks quickly.
Though over the due course of time the chickenpox marks will start fading, it is better to take care of some precautions:
1. Never touch your pockmarks with dirty hands, and avoid touching altogether.
2. Never try to scratch these marks, even during itchy feeling and irritation. Scratching will make the marks more deep and difficult. The strict rule that should be adhered when you have chickenpox is ‘‘don`t scratch or pick at the scabs’. When the raw boils are scratched, infection will spread to other parts of the skin and the situation will become more disastrous.
3. Try to sleep in a single position to avoid unintended home remedy to lighten the scars. Scabs should dry and fall off naturally, so that the scars become manageable and can be treated more effectively.
4. The scars should be cleaned daily and should be kept clean. It should be cleaned by a soft wash-cloth.
