I was sick with chickenpox in childhood, somewhere in 1989 in the USA, my sister and dad were sick with me, who somehow managed not to get sick with it in childhood in the USSR. Our doctors recommended Caladryl, but then we suddenly read on the bottle that it is generally not recommended for chickenpox. And then my mother bought Calamine, which is slightly different in composition, but both are antihistamines, which, unlike brilliant green, on the contrary, contain something like a foundation for masking acne. And they are used more often against such American diseases as poison ivy and poison oak - allergies caused by these plants.

Against chickenpox, familiar Americans recommended even cold baths with starch.

And what about green stuff. - I have an English friend who has lived in Moscow for many years. I cut myself once with him and used brilliant green, asked him if he knew such a Russian medicine. He said that yes, he knew, but the first time he saw him on some child (he teaches English to children) he thought it was a special thing to mark children as punishment for something! These are the traditions of raising children in Russia :)

... A few more words about green stuff.

Few people know, but its use was of a marking nature!

Chickenpox stops being contagious a week after the last rashes, and greenery stays on the skin for about 7 days. It was very convenient to "mark" the pustules and monitor them.

Accordingly, quarantine can be removed when there are no new rashes.

In the "west" vaccination against chickenpox is widely practiced. Therefore, they do not need greenery, nor other antiseptics. And if the child is sick with chickenpox, then they will congratulate and send home because it does not require treatment in most cases.

First, brilliant green is not really needed. It can be replaced with almost any topical disinfectant solution and will work just as well. In general, such funds are needed to dry the wounds and reduce the likelihood of infection. The choice of brilliant green by Russian doctors is to the greatest extent connected with the tradition that has developed in our country: starting from about the middle of the last century, brilliant green has become a regular antiseptic in the USSR due to its exceptional cheapness. We didn’t think much about how the patients with green spots looked.

Secondly, the main treatment of chickenpox is not as strongly tied to local remedies as is commonly thought. To reduce itching, antihistamines are used, and acyclovir is used to fight the virus. It is also advisable to drink more, and, if necessary, lower the temperature. Well, almost the most important thing in all this is to scratch less.

Zelenka in the West is not considered an antiseptic at all and is used exclusively for labeling, for example. future operating areas. Regular body marker, for good.
