Re: Should I try and get my kids chicken pox?
yes, I would do it. my kids got chicken pox from a cousin who was vaccinated and had 3 pox. all 3 got them at an age where they could itch/pick and they have scars. my youngest who was 3 at that outbreak has no scars. so I think under 6 is a good age.
I myself never had the pox and have been exposed many times so have a natural immunity.
I would recommend homeopathics when they get it as well as throat coat tea or vsc pills to lessen symptoms.
unassisted, homebirthin mom Had I not birthed children into the world and become a mother... I would not know true love, laughter or insanity.
