I'm 48 years old (49 in July) and have just contracted the Chicken Pox for the first time. After being exposed to my husband's Shingles, I began taking 1 mg of B-12 daily, 500 mg of L-Lysine (which I have increased to 3000 mg) daily, olive leaf complex (approx. 1 1/2 tsp - 1Tbsp every 2hours), colloidal silver (about 1 tsp 3-5 x daily), as well as putting tea tree oil on each spot multiple times a day. In addition to this I make the Calcium Benonite clay with ACV and cayenne mixed into it. I put this on and let it dry for 20 minutes then wash it off with tea tree oil soap. Once I've dried off, I put organic cold pressed coconut oil all over.
Unfortunately, I am just getting worse. This is day 5 of the rash and now my glands are swollen and my throat is hurting.
I am wondering if anyone has had experience with adult Chicken Pox. What suggestions do you have for either decrease the duration, decrease the discomfort, or am I actually doing better than most adults? I understand Adult Chicken Pox can be serious. At what point do I consider a doctor? Or is it too late for that at this point?
Final note, I also took an oatmeal bath last night but feel much worse through the night.
