Almost Over: If they are starting to dry up, you are healing.Good rule of thumb is that when they are all scabbed , it is over.Sounds like several more days.

Chickenpox: Most blisters crust over in about a week. However new blisters could come in waves so it might take 10 to 14 days for all to scab over.
