Chicken pox and calamine lotion Lock Rss

My 15 month old daughter has chicken pox. Most are past the blister stage and have noe burst and turned into little scabs. None of them seem to be bothering her and she has been having Panadol and Pinetasol baths. The doctor recommended calamine lotion if she starts to itch but the chemist told me not to use it as it can lead to scaring. Has anyone else heard this?

Haven't heard that before. My DD han't had chicken pox but I was looking after 2 nieces last year in the school holidays when they both got it. Their mum told me to use calamine lotion on them and I did. They haven't any scars.
