If he has Chicken Pox there is not a whole lot that can be done. The important thing is to put on anti itch cream or lotion as scratching can not only help spread the infection, but can lead to scarring.

I also seem to recall that there may be some additional effects to adults, making the disease slightly more serious for them. You should have you friend check with a doctor about that. I got a very mild case of it at age 7, so I don't remember a whole lot about it. It didn't make much of an impression on me except that I got to stay home from school.

As far as I know there is no cure. It just runs it's course.

I have had the chicken pox in the past. When I had them, everyday I bathed in some oatmeal stuff, I think it is called Aveeno, and most of it went away in a week. You will also need a lot of rest. I hope this helps. Peace.:D
