Hi..... A person with chickenpox is infectious from two days before the spots first appear until they have all crusted over (commonly about five days after onset of the rash).... Chickenpox generally resolves within a week or two without treatment - there is no medication or treatment to "cure" it..... Avoiding dehydration - you should drink plenty of fluids, preferably water, to prevent dehydration.....
