Dear customer, it is a pleasure to attend you, I want to tell you that what your daughter is experiencing is a condition called varicella-zoster is a self-limited viral clinical picture that reverts by itself with symptomatic treatment such as ibuprofen every 8 hours orally accompanied by diphenhydramine cream every 8 hours for the itching caused by these lesions, the situation resolves satisfactorily after a week approximately without worse complications, it is also essential to maintain abundant hydration because decompensations due to dehydration are a common reason for consultation, I would like you to keep me informed of your health situation to know about the evolution of your daughter.
