During the active phase, her doctor will give her antivital ointments for the chicken pox.

After the episode, to minimize and remove scars from chicken pox, you can try these treatments:

Moisturizers: this is the most important step for this. Apply moisturizers to the areas twice daily. Apply Aloe vera containing moisturizers.

Give short baths only or showers in warm water. Use mild baby soaps only and keep the skin dry

Use oatmeal soaking products in the bath and gently wash her face with this.

DO not try to remove the scabs, this can cause scarring.

These two steps will be sufficient, do not try anything more on young skin, it will heal naturally dont worry.
