Hi Sandhya,
You can take a luke warm bath even if chickenpox is there. But we will suggest to add few neem leaves to the water before making it warm. This will add in the healing process. Again make sure, you dry the skin properly after bath. Wet skin for a longer time will lead to skin irritation.
