Chicken Pox Relief

Recommended Posts

My little one doesn't have the pox yet but we were visiting someone who broke out the day after we visited so I'm on chicken pox watch and would like some answers before they show up if that's possible. From what I read I will need fever reducer, antihistamine and calomine lotion? Does anyone know for a fact any products that are gluten free for this? I called a few numbers I had for fever reducers and antihistamines I had at home already for my other child but these companies couldn't give a proper answer. The pharmasist said I had to call the numbers on the boxes to find out. I don't want to have to call every company at the drug store if I can avoid it. Can someone give me some advice here? Thanks!

That website might give you a general idea of what is gluten free. I would of course call and double check (don't know how often the site is updated). Good Luck!

Here's a list that I got from Tylenol a couple of months ago:

In reference to your inquiry concerning the gluten content in our products, I have listed below the products which have been tested and do not contain detectable levels of gluten.

The following McNeil products have been tested and do not contain detectable levels of gluten:

I would only use tylenol for pain and fever with chicken pox. Benadryl and calamine lotion. My daughter got relief from Aveeno bath but would be a nono because it is oat based. Maybe a baking soda bath would help too.
