What is Chickenpox?

1 2 3

By World Medical Care | 01/08/2015

Varicella, commonly known as Chickenpox, is an illness that affects individuals of all ages, including pregnant women, newborns and adults. People who have weak immune systems can have a hard time fighting the infection.

Varicella is a contagious disease. Individuals can get infected very easily. Sneezing, sharing a meal, coughing (coming from an infected person) can get you infected. Symptoms of Varicella may appear after 14 days of being in contact with the infected person Once infected, individuals will see both rashes and blisters throughout their body that will cause itchiness.

If your child is infected with Varicella he/she MUST stay at home. Let’s take into account that once you have had Varicella you are immune to the illness, meaning that you aren’t going to get infected.

There are 4 states in Varicella:

Approximately, it will take an infected person more than a week to be ready to get back to school, work, etc.

Note: Herpes Zoster, commonly known as zoster and shingles, is caused by the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (this is the same virus that causes varicella). Individuals may only have one episode of Herpes Zoster in their lifetime, but may develop a second or third episode.

Once Varicella is treated, the virus remains inactive. Herpes Zoster can reactive later in life in the form of a rush and is known as Herpes Zoster.
