HI Mohima

This is Dr. Aniruddha also from Kolkata, India.

Regarding your scars, you must ask ur family for Caladril, lotion ok.

Use that after a sponge bath, if possible twice a day before going to sleep at night, as you see, it has a cooling effect and will help you out regarding the weather we are having now.Although I don't which part of the city you are from, I am from salt Lake City, eastern part of Kolkata. Moreover it also reduces your itches and also enhances your complexion as well.  Ok


It works wonder, it is a bit costly, but works wonderful, but do not use Lacto-calaminol, it is oil based, so don't ever use it. and strictly no no.

If you also develop allergeis not now, I am talking about, but usually, you know the allergic rashes one develops by having prawns etc, this caladril works there too. Lacto calaminol is used when in winter, but we didn't have winter this year so caladril is fine.

When using caladril shake well before use.

also if u wanna use the part with no pox or the area pox cells came off use Pears glycerine soap, Indian medical association of dermatology recommends that, but let all the cells come off then only take a bath, but till the caladril, is perfect.  and plz do have nonveg protein if u r one, but if ur veg use eat nutrela chunks but less spicy. in pox you should keep ur body cool so where caladril works and if u can also apply sandal paste (CHANDAN BAATA) but that is way to costly
