  • The child should be given intravenous fluids and encouraged to take water. Antibiotics can be given to treat any other infection that attacks the child’s body. Creams that control itching can also be rubbed on the child’s body.

  • The child should be taken to the hospital immediately and should have minimal contact with other children because it is very contagious.
