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 per…son'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 will make a person develop a fever before the breakout. After the breakout, the chickenpox will make a person itch very badly for a few days.
Chicken pox has an incubation period of 10-21 days. This means that you wont have symptoms less than 10 days after exposure nor more than 21 days. Additionally, contagion of c…hicken pox stops once the actual "breakout" begins. Symptoms vary greatly. Some may experience no symptoms, even being unaware they have or have had chicken pox. Others may experience a general fatigue, cold symptoms, flu-like symptoms, fever, nausea etc. Children generally experience milder symptoms than adults. If you are an adult and unsure whether you've had chicken pox, have been exposed and are experiencing any of the above symptoms, see your doctor. The effects of chicken pox in adults can have a much more serious impact including pneumonia.
you can only get it once be cause your t-cell know that how to fight the virues out
Chickenpox can cause a runny nose and sore throat.
The best-known signs of chickenpox are: A red, itchy rash that initially may look like insect bitesSmall, liquid-filled blisters that break open and crust over The chickenpox …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:FeverAbdominal pain or loss of appetiteMild headacheGeneral feeling of unease and discomfort (malaise) or irritabilityA dry coughHeadache 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.
Anemia. Stomach flu. Cold-headache, sore muscles, achy Death. All sorts of non-fun feelings.
Fever is generally the first symptoms with the rash starting on the face a day or two later. Early symptoms - often preceding the rash symptomsAchingTirednessHeadacheFeverSor…e throatMalaise Little red bumps Symptoms are usually more severe in adults than in children. Expect to have a few uncomfortable days.
Yes, but not in the manner one might think. There are 9 human herpesviruses and we all carry a handful of them. Chickenpox (Varicella Zoster) is a disease caused by one of… them: HHV3 (Varicella Zoster Virus, or VZV) It's the closest relative to the viruses to which you appear to be referring: the Herpes Simplex Viruses (HHV1 & 2, or HSV-1 and HSV-2) The Varicella virus can recur later in life in some people and when it does, that disease is called Herpes Zoster (Shingles.)
The symptoms of chicken pox in adults may at first appear very light but can get a lot worse as the disease develops. Several symptoms that might lead to chickenpox diagnosis …often contain increased body temperature (fever), headache, cough, feeling of a sore throat and skin rash. It is considered wise a patient should contact his/her physician or doctor before the symptoms reach a high level.
They are both manifestations of the same virus, Herpes Zoster. CHicken Pox is usuall a childhood disease, shingles is a different manifestation of the virus that strikes mostl…y older people.
Yes, you can transmit chickenpox even when you have no symptoms. It is contagious from the time before the bumps appear until the bumps are all scabbed over.
Well first you get a stuffy nose then you get a horse thought then your hands start to turn purple then your hair turns green and then you get hot flashes and your breath al…ways smells like bacon and you suddenly get a craving for grilled chipmunk .
In HIV and AIDS
HIV is not a disease. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Chicken pox is not a symptom, it is a disease caused by the varicella zoster virus. I think you mean the rash of chick…en pox. Also, AIDS is a disease where HIV viruses attack the T cells of your immune system (only virus to attack immune system). The actual disease doesn't really show. When your T cells are attacked and killed, your body loses the ability to fight a certain disease and people can die from a normal cold because their body is unable to fight it off. So, the symptoms of AIDS can differ because it depends on what T cells were attacked and which dieseases the person is unable to fight off.
Gastroenteritis is broad classification in which cholera is a subcategory. So many cases of cholera are mild and go undetected. You classify the painless watery diarrhoea of a…cute onset as cholera like syndrome. Rice water stool is classic for diagnosis of cholera. It is not like a jelly but watery and spreads all over the room, unless you put the patient on cholera cot. ( Contributor could not make available, one such cot, in his life time even after desperate try!)
Varicella is another name for chickenpox. There is a vaccine now for chickenpox. Children often got chickenpox when they were very young. This virus remains in the body until …the immune system cannot repress it anymore. It then re-activates and forms shingles. About one in three will get shingles. A child who gets the vaccine will not get shingles when he gets older. The symptoms of chickenpox local look a lot like a "chicken pecked" a spot on the skin. These will begin to scab over in a few days. The scabs can be infectious.
