What is Poxclin Coolmousse?
Poxclin Coolmousse is a light, soothing treatment which helps to ease the itching and irritation caused by chickenpox in children. It cools and soothes the skin, preventing itching and irritation. It can also help to prevent scarring and blocks bacteria from causing infections, perfect for those who are worried about the long term affects that chickenpox can have on their children.
What is chickenpox?
Chickenpox is a common virus which usually affects children. You can get chickenpox at any age, but it can be more severe in adults. When your child has chickenpox, you’ll notice red spots which will then fill with fluid and then scab over. Chickenpox will usually clear up within a week, and it’s unusual for people to experience chickenpox more than once. Some of the other symptoms of chickenpox include:
- High temperature
- Feeling achy, pained, or generally unwell
- Loss of appetite
How will Poxclin Coolmousse help to ease symptoms of chickenpox?
Poxclin Coolmousse contains the active ingredient 2QR, which works as a Bio-Active Bacterial Blocker. This means that it helps to ease chicken pox by blocking harmful bacteria which can irritate your condition, helping your skin’s natural barrier to protect itself, easing itching and helping to recondition the skin in the process.
Can I use this product if my child is using other medication?

Can adults use Poxclin?
