Hi..., Most people who are diagnosed with chickenpox will be advised to manage their symptoms while they’re waiting for the virus to pass through the system... Antiviral drugs may be prescribed to those who experience complications from the virus, or who are at risk for adverse effects. High-risk patients are usually young, elderly, or have underlying medical issues. These antiviral drugs do not cure chickenpox. Instead, they make the symptoms less severe, and make your body more likely to heal faster...
