How to Relieve Itching from the Chicken Pox with Oats

Oatmeal has been used for centuries as a soothing agent and home remedy for itchy skin, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, and shingles. It has properties that not only moisturize skin but can act as an emollient and improve dry skin. Parents will be glad to know that it soothes chickenpox, as well. A homemade oatmeal bath can reduce your child’s itching and discomfort during this difficult time.

Mum to Mum top tip: put them in tights and hang them up as you run the bath so the water goes through the tights (or pop sock) and oats.
