I have chickenpox, and the blisters are big. What should I eat, and what should I avoid eating? And please tell me some remedies.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You should consult a nearby physician to confirm the diagnosis of chickenpox.
I suggest you try the following.

Diet wise, you should avoid oily and spicy food, and eat a lot of green leafy vegetables. And drink a lot of water.
Do not burst the blister, as it is infective and will spread in the first few weeks.
