Attack of the Chicken Pox
Zareef was diagnosed with chicken pox by his mommy and daddy 2 days ago. It started out with tiny red dots but now is growing plentifold. He's itchy and keeps on scratching at his poxes. How do I say to a 2-year old not to scratch coz if he does, he'll be scarred for life?? Kesian little kiddo nih... one whole body is covered but still managed to pose for the camera.
I've given him Calpol for his high temperature (dia demam sekali), calomine lotion for his poxes and Piriton to help ease the itchiness. He's weak and feeling very floppy, miserable, whingeing, clingy and whinny, the works. What else can I do to ease his suffering, anyone?
Luckily both of us are immune as we've already gotten the miserable chicken pox when we were in our teens. Now, our house it out of bounds to everyone and I'm quarantining him until this ordeal is over.
