Hmm, what have you tried so far? Baking soda, oatmeal in baths or as a paste..?
My first though was tea tree oil so I did a quick google search, this is just one I found, but there are tons there. I am nursing right now, so am limited, typing one handed.
Chicken Pox: Symptoms are itching, red rash and blisters on the chest and arms. Chicken pox can leave severe scars if left untreated. Tea tree oil reduces itching which can lead to scratching and later infection. Apply tea tree oil to blisters. Allow tea tree oil to remain on 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Apply silk and satin body lotion to entire area. Repeat every 6 hours or until rash and blisters disappear.
I also like Coliodal Silver. I found this on another site: Colloidal Silver and Olive Leaf Extract are natural anti-virals that will help to eliminate the chicken pox. Colloidal Silver can also be applied directly to the spots.
Hope they kick it soon!

Thanks so much for your advice. I will give them a try.
Unfortunately, and that is a BIG UNFORTUNATELY, I had all three of my girls vaccinated with the chicken pox vaccine a long time ago. It turns out that the vaccine was NOT as powerful as they thought. NOW, they are saying they need a booster shot every 5 years. Thats not the worst part of it, though. The worst part is this: They have a minor version of the chicken pox, just a few spots. Every couple of days a new one appears while the others have already scabbed up. Each girls has only 3 pox. What this means is that while the vaccine has limited the severity of the pox (they dont even itch), it has NOT provided them the immunity they initially said it would. And now they will continue to run the risk of CATCHING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. It makes me SO MAD!!!

coconut oil. it gets into the mitochondria and destroys the virus from the inside. coconut oil is great for anything really. you can apply it to them and it can be taken internally as well.

The craziest remedy I ever heard was ice cream. It was supposed to make em all come out, and of course it will make them feel better. Frozen fruit, through the juicer.
