Viruses provocateurs are in their content. Emerging issues: means to swim when chicken pox you can not do? Fortunately, it is possible, but it should be done very carefully.

- if a high temperature;
- if you are suffering feel weakness, malaise, dizziness;
- if the pressure is increased;
- if the skin is a big part of the pimples hurt.
But if the above symptoms are not observed, then you can safely wash in the bathroom. Even the Ukrainian pediatrician Komorowski sure that water treatment for the patient with smallpox is vital.

To the bath was not easy, and treatment, it is possible to add broths of medicinal plants (herbal teas you can buy in pharmacies or over the Internet):
In addition, in the water you can add a decoction of oak bark. This remedy has astringent properties, so the pimples will begin to heal faster.
Baths with herbal decoctions can be done with the chickenpox in children and adults. The only contraindication is the presence of Allergy to grass or oak bark.
Decoctions are prepared in elementary. A pinch of dry plants, pour a glass of boiling water (just like tea) and infuse or boil for a few minutes (the second option is faster).
Cups of broth would be enough for one bath. To make an overdose in the case of herbs impossible.

Bathing in water with baking soda will immediately relieve itching. To prepare the soda bath should be diluted in water, three tablespoons of baking soda. After bathing the pimples have to reprocess the green paint. To take water treatments with baking soda can be no more than ten minutes.
