You get chicken pox from a person infected with the virus that causes it, Herpes Zoster. Chickenpox usually occurs on the scalp, face, and torso. That doesn't mean they can't …appear elsewhere - I had them on my legs and arms and bottom!After the initial infection, it goes dormant and may never reappear. Some people get recurring attacks when the dormant virus in one or more nerves of their peripheral nervous system becomes active again, and they experience a painful outbreak of blisters called shingles. Chicken pocks are small pimples that are reddish. If you scratch them the chicken pocks will Itch more. its called shingles Chicken Pox is a virus that can get in your body. You can cactch it by being given it from someone who had it. Then you get the spots and boom you have chicken pox. If you don't like this answer then go to the doctor. They'll know. Well, This is what I was told. Sorry.
Signs and Symptoms of Chicken Pox Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease that spreads from person to person by direct contact or through the air from an infected person'…s coughing or sneezing. Touching the fluid from a chickenpox blister can also spread the disease. A person with chickenpox is contagious from 1-2 days before the rash appears until all blisters have formed scabs. This may take 5-10 days. It takes from 10-21 days after contact with an infected person for someone to develop chickenpox. . The chickenpox lesions (blisters) start as a 2-4 mm red papule which develops an irregular outline (rose petal). A thin-walled, clear vesicle (dew drop) develops on top of the area of redness. This "dew drop on a rose petal" lesion is very characteristic for chickenpox. After about 8-12 hours the fluid in the vesicle gets cloudy and the vesicle breaks leaving a crust. The fluid is highly contagious, but once the lesion crusts over, it is not considered contagious. The crust usually falls off after 7 days sometimes leaving a crater-like scar. Although one lesion goes through this complete cycle in about 7 days, another hallmark of chickenpox is the fact that new lesions crop up every day for several days. Therefore, it may take about a week until new lesions stop appearing and existing lesions crust over. Children are not to be sent back to school until all lesions have crusted over.. Second infections with chickenpox occur in immunocompetent individuals, but are uncommon. Such second infections are rarely severe. A soundly-based conjecture being carefully assessed in countries with low prevalence of chickenpox due to immunisation, low birth rates, and increased separation is that immunity has been reinforced by subclinical challenges and this is now less common. This is more dangerous with shingles. There have been reported cases of repeat infections. Chickenpox is highly contagious and is spread through the air when infected people cough or sneeze, or through physical contact with fluid from lesions on the skin. Zoster, also known as shingles, is a reactivation of chickenpox and may also be a source of the virus for susceptible children and adults. It is not necessary to have physical contact with the infected person for the disease to spread. Those infected can spread chickenpox before they know they have the disease - even before any rash develops. In fact, people with chickenpox can infect others from about 2 days before the rash develops until all the sores have crusted over, usually 4-5 days after the rash starts.. 1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_pox Very itchy, fever, not very hungry and very uncountable. Tiredness, loss of appetite, fever, nausea, headache. The most obvious symptom are the pox marks on the skin.
Chickenpox is an infectious disease causing a mild fever and a rash of itchy inflamed blisters. It can also cause headache, sore throat, and feel cold. It is caused by the var…icella zoster virus and mainly affects children, who are afterward usually immune. It is very contagious, especially if the fluid touches you. The incubation period is 10-20 days. In the USA children are inoculated against Chickenpox. In the UK they are not. Once you have had chickenpox, you usually do not get it again, but you can have a secondary infection caused by the same virus which lives inside your nerves for the rest of your life. Many people get this other infection, called Shingles , which is very painful and has a rash that runs along the nerves of the body. It usually runs around the lower back and looks similar to the Chickenpox. Treatment is by topical administration of a lotion such as Calamine to cover the spots. This reduces the fever and itch. It is best not to scratch as that only spreads the infection. It should be pointed out that complications can occur in rare cases, leading to Encephalitis (inflamation of the brain). If aspirin is taken, Reye's syndrome , causing fever and vomiting.
anyone, if you dont get the shot to prevent it
Yes, you can get chickenpox. With increasing rates of immunization, the chances are lower, but it can still happen if you are not immunized or haven't been infected in the pas…t.
The virus which causes chicken pox, varicella zoster, is passed on through close contact with an individual who has ongoing chickenpox. Touching the spots or pox when they wee…p will pass the virus on. Chickenpox is also spread in fine droplets of moisture, which contain the virus. The droplets are produced when the infected person coughs or sneezes, another person then inhales these droplets and may become infected. See the related links for more complete information. Chickenpox is a highly contagious viral disease that causes hundreds of itchy, fluid-filled blisters on the skin that burst and form crusts. The disease usually affects children, though adults may become infected as well. It is transmitted by direct contact with a rash or through contaminated droplets in air or moisture, usually spread by coughing or sneezing. The varicella-zoster virus (VZV) responsible for chickenpox is one of eight herpes viruses known to infect humans and is found throughout the world. Varicella is transfered through touching the blisters of an infected individual.
I had chicken pox when I was 18.
Chickenpox is a disease caused by varicella zoster virus, which is part of the herpesvirus family. Having chickenpox is not the same as having herpes.
What are the early signs of chickenpox in a 6 month old who has been exposed to someone with shingles?
Basically the basic signs of chicken pox includes fever, body achesand malaise and the usual blisters that usually all over the body.
The best-known signs of chickenpox are: . A red, itchy rash that initially may look like insect bites . Small, liquid-filled blisters that break open and crust over The c…hickenpox rash occurs in three stages. First, there are raised pink or red bumps (papules). These bumps will turn into fluid-filled blisters (vesicles). And, finally, the vesicles will crust over and scab. It's possible that all three of these stages may occur at once. The rash may be preceded by or accompanied by: . Fever . Abdominal pain or loss of appetite . Mild headache . General feeling of unease and discomfort (malaise) or irritability . A dry cough . Headache Common sites for the rash include the face, scalp, chest and back. The rash can also spread across your entire body, even into your throat, eyes and vagina. New spots continue to appear for several days. In healthy children, the disease is generally mild.
If you're thirteen or older, you can get the second chickenpox vaccine as long as it's been at least 28 days since the last one. For patients under thirteen, they must wait th…ree months minimum until the second vaccine.
Fever is generally the first symptoms with the rash starting on the face a day or two later. Early symptoms - often preceding the rash symptoms . Aching . Tiredness . H…eadache . Fever . Sore throat . Malaise Little red bumps Symptoms are usually more severe in adults than in children. Expect to have a few uncomfortable days.
Signs of infection include leakage of pus from the blisters or excessive redness, warmth, tenderness, or swelling around the blisters.
