What to Eat and Avoid During Chicken Pox

 
Chicken pox is one of the most uncomfortable diseases, which typically affects children. Although symptoms often include a fever, headache, sore throat, or stomach ache, the worst part about this extremely contagious illness is the red, itchy skin rash that covers the body in "crops." The rash usually appears first on the abdomen or back and face, and then can spread to almost everywhere else on the body — and it is not pleasant. While many children avoid the disease by getting the Varicella vaccination, some who are exposed need meticulous care in order to get better. Of course, a huge part of this care involves a supportive diet.
