Half a cup of baking soda in a bath was great in alleviating the children's itch when they had chicken pox - or dab on as a paste.

I have used this with my son and suggested it to friends who found it work too. The person with chicken pox should bath in water with 4 table spoons of bicarbinate of soda in a quarter bath of water. Whilst not a cure, it seems to help the itching and dry up the spots.
