15Lots Of Rest

This goes without saying, but the best remedy for the tiredness that comes with the first few days of chickenpox, is to rest. Don’t push the child to do any kind of activity. Allow them to lay around, and get as much sleep as possibly. It’s been shown that the

more sleep a child gets, the better their body can fight off infections and viruses. So let them rest up. They’ll feel better in no time.

The later stages of chickenpox can also cause a child to be tired. It’s not as common, but it’s definitely possible. Be sure to keep their beds dressed lightly, no heavy blankets, and change the sheets once a day, making sure to wash the sheets that were just removed from the bed immediately. This helps to prevent the spread of the virus.
