Virasoothe chicken pox gel in Morrisons at 0.94p

20
Found 8th Nov 2012
First deal post so apologies if I have anything wrong.

This virasoothe gel is £5 odd elsewhere and I paid that a couple of days ago in Tesco for my pox ridden girl.

Not sure if it's local or national but worth a look. Bar code is 5011309089516

Fantastic reduction to 94p and great as an alternative to calamine lotion.

boo to late ours have just gone. hot deal anyway

Honestly this stuff is liquid gold - saved our sanity over the last Chrsistmas when 2 of our childerbeasts got the worst case of the pox - awesome find! I would fill the trolley with it!

I picked up 3 and a mahoosive bottle of calamine lotion as I'm fully expecting it to appear on the youngest within 2 weeks. I couldn't believe it when I saw the price

The Germolene with local anesthetic included works well too. Often found in Poundland. It numbs the skin so they can't "feel" the itch and it helps prevent infection from the kids scratching at the blisters/sores. Don't forget to cut their finger nails as short as possible

Good price. Well spotted (sorry for the pun)

Cheers for that, I'll grab some germolene too. My eldest was never this sore with it.

Hot! Good find

'£5 odd' Now that's a term i haven't heard for a LONG time

If it's just the itching that's the main problem sprinkle a cup of oats in the bath whilst running the warm water leave for bout 5 mins and then let you little one have a good old splash around for as long as you have to spare, then just pat them dry with a towel.

The oats create a colloidal suspension-oaty milk that has anti-inflammatory properties so supresses the itching. Or tie the oats in an old stocking if you're worried about mess/blocking plug hole, but DONT reuse the same batch of oats once they've been soaked in the water. Natural, cheap and works for all sorts!

Oaty baths are wonderful, so lovely and the girls love them

It's more the problem of itchy and really painful spots being in her lady bits. Poor sausage, must hurt loads.

My little boy has chicken pox at the minute and the nurse at my local gp surgery said this is good.

I gave my son Chlorphenamine though as I had read about it on NHS choices site, started giving him it as soon as the spots started coming out and it completely stopped anymore spots (apparently the spots are a reaction to the virus so the chlorphenamine stops the reaction) He only has them on one side of his back and they're very small and not itching at all. On the box it says its for over 6's but i checked with the doctors surgery and was told kids over 1yr can have 6mg a day (4mg per tablet) I hide half a tablet in some chocolate or flapjack as he's only 3 so too young to take tablets but apparently liquid piriton is the same. Hope that helps someone

My son was prescribed chlorphenamine when he was 18 months, when we found out he was allergic to egg (that was fun!); so yes safe enough for younger children if used correctly.

Any good for eczema type conditions too?

bargain! we paid over £6 when ours got the pox and it was worth every single penny!! if your household hasnt had it then stock up!! x

This is a brill product, my pharmacist recommended it to us 2 years ago when my 3 had the pox round easter. I kept it in the fridge for a cooling affect. Usually expensive but then again i spread it all over rather than the individual pox. So much easier than calamine lotin and coton wool / tissues. Stock up !!!

I thought i was the only one who referred to them as lady bits ( well i did have 2 boys first) I remember all too hving them down there 30 yrs ago, i had them in every bodily oand advised my mum to get me to drink loads as it would help flush it out but i really do fel for her the sting was hellif i remembered rightly and i was 11-12 at the time. poor wee pet

Cracking deal. Was paying £10 a time in August when my two had it!!! Excellent stuff!

Piriton syrup was a blessing for me when my son had chickenpox, nothing else would settle him. Wish I had seen this stuff though, I got through so much calamine lotion! Heat added

Where've the reply etc options gone today? Yes Repouk, oaty goodness also works for excema and/or any other itchy conditions

Please unexpire, saw it at this price today at the Pharmacy in Morrison's Solihull.

Our 2 had chicken pox in the US a couple of years ago on holiday, best time to have it, they were given a medicine liquid form of one of the coldsore medicines and an also a medicine for the iching on the few spots they had, cleared up with no more spots and no scars in 24 hours. Was told that here its classed as to expensive for it to be normally prescribed but if you ask for it they will give you it if you push. The kids were treated as stars over there because they dont see many cases of chickn pox as they vacinate against it.
