Mine haven't and they have been vaccinated.  Both my brother and I got severely ill from them when we had them.  What my mom used was corn starch baths and calimine lotion boy the gallon.

 No, we vaccinate.  My sister and I both got really bad cases of the pox years ago before the vaccine so I didn't want my dd to have to go through that.

Both of mine had it before they got the vaccine out for it. We just did oatmeal baths and ointment if I recall. It was a long time ago. My kids are now 20 and 22.

Mine had it before there was a vaccine. The older had it for two weeks, then the day he went back to school, the younger came down with it, so I was at home for a month.

my now 11 month old dd got it at 8 months old :*(  No cures but benadryl and Tylenol were our friend.  It broke my heart every day but she was a trooper through it.
