    Wash as normal, but gently, don't use harsh soaps and don't scrub. Use a good moisturiser.

    They will heal in time, but you may well have some scars and marks for a while. Once the scabs fall off make up might help (if you're a girl) If you're male you could try a bit of concealer perhaps.

    You can go back to work as soon as all the blisters have scabbed over (if you're feeling well enough, obviously), as that's when you'll no longer be infectious.

    Otherwise, as above; just be gentle with washing etc.

    I found moisturising my skin helped a great deal as it made the scabs less itchy. I agree with Kabloomybuzz.
