Sylvester, it all depends on how healthy the patient is and how bad the chicken pox is. It is usually enough to give something for itching (Aterax®, Phergan®, etc.), something to dry out the blisters (calamine, Calasthetic®, etc.) and something like Myprodol® for pain and fever. There are anti-viral medicines available, but they are expensive and seldom necessary. Good luck.
