Chickenpox (lat. Varicella)-an acute infectious disease caused by a virus filter and is characterized by fever and spotty-papulzno-verykuloznym rash on the skin and mucous membranes. Varicella zoster virus has tropism for epithelial skin and mucous membranes and, to a lesser extent, to the cells of the nervous system. Chickenpox is much more widespread infection throughout the world. Every year in the world, recorded 80–90 million cases of chickenpox. Most chickenpox sick children from the age of twelve to 15 years, but about 10% of diseases have on people over 15 years. Thus the analysis of published data revealed that chicken pox is a common disease of varying severity. Analysis showed the treatment of disease, using tools like causal treatment and symptomatic. Symptomatic therapy includes antipyretic and antiseptics for external use-to prevent bacterial complications. All of the above indicates that the disease requires a special approach to treatment, and in this respect very relevant is the use of extemporaneous drugs that better take into account the individual characteristics of the patient, his age, condition, contraindications and more. Also advantage of these drugs is the lack (or use a small amount) preservatives, stabilizers, dyes, fillers and other excipients synthetic origin, which are widely used in industrial production factors and may be potential side effects of drugs.
