I got chicken pox two years ago and now I get outbreaks sometimes, although very rarely.
You need to apply topical acyclovir as soon as you suspect an outbeak is comming (when you feel that the skin is a bit hot or sore). I also take an acyclovir pill before the outbreak comes, then keep the treatment according to the dosage I usually take. Supposedly acyclovir is useless unless you start taking it right before the outbreak.
Also I know this is gross but if it's just a little redness with no big bumps then I do conceal it with foundation and red lipstick. Make sure to clean the lipstick with alcohol afterwards though, although afaik the virus can't live outside of the human body for long.
