NEW YORK  — Barbara Walters isn't “scratching too much” from chickenpox, but she says she won't be back at “The View” for three more weeks.

Walters phoned into the ABC talk show today. Calling from her home, she reported that she's weak but not in any pain.

She was hospitalized on Jan. 19 after fainting and cutting her head at a party in Washington. The 83-year-old has said she had the chickenpox and a temperature at the time, but didn't realize it. She suffered a concussion and got six stitches. She was released 10 days later.

She announced today: “I'm not itching away.”

Then she marveled that the best remedy for itching is an age-old one, saying: “We have Facebook, Twitter and calamine lotion.”
