I developed this reaction after a prescription for asthma which I had a bad reaction to. Now whenever I am around smoke I become fatugued and feel sick for sometimes days. I strongly believe this to be true and I would appriciate any insight into a cure or improvement.
Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) causes both chickenpox and shingles. The VZV is a member of the family of herpes viruses, as are Epstein Barr virus (causing infectious mononucleosis, or "mono") and Herpes simplex (causing cold sores). Chickenpox is the initial presentation, and is usually a childhoo…d infection that is short lived and self-limiting. It is a highly contagious airborne disease (spread easily through coughing or sneezing of infected individuals), but can also be spread by direct contact with secretions from the rash. It can also be passed along by exposure to the rash of a person with shingles. A person with chickenpox is infectious one to two days before the rash appears, and remain contagious until all lesions have crusted over (this takes approximately six days). Crusted lesions are not infectious. Chickenpox seldom causes scarring, yet when it does, the scars most often occur around the eyes and consist of a small depression. Chickenpox lesions can become infected, usually from scratching and most frequently with bacteria called Staphylococcus. In adults, the disease is more severe, and can cause pneumonia, hepatitis,and encephalitis.In particular, up to 10% of pregnant women with chickenpox develop pneumonia, and the infection can casue deformities in their fetuses.Varicella can be lethal to adults with impaired immunity. Like many other herpes viruses, it usually stays in the body for life, but remains latent in the spinal nerve roots; it can reactivate in later life, to produce a painful rash called shingles. (MORE)
When your body is invaded by things like a virus, the immune system sends out white blood cells (also called leukocytes) to find the infection. The white blood cells release a chemical called cytokines, which is what causes the joint pain seen not just in the flu but with many inflammatory/autoimmun…e conditions like arthritis, lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, etc. (MORE)

Chickenpox is caused by a virus called varicella zoster virus, sometimes abbreviated VZV. Chicken pox is a contagious viral disease that produces itchy blisters. Varicella-zoster virus is a DNA virus.
Chickenpox (and other infectious diseases) do not actually cause fever. The fever is caused by the person's own immune system trying to fight the virus (or bacteria). These infectious organisms usually reproduce fastest near normal body temperature; by raising the body temperature the immune syste…m slows their reproduction, making it easier to eliminate them. If the fever is mild it is best to leave it alone and let it do its job. Use of damp cloths on the forehead or sucking ice cubes to make the patient more comfortable should be all that is needed. Only if the fever is causing extreme discomfort or gets to about 104F (life threatening range) should other measures be taken to reduce the fever, and the advice of a medical professional should always be sought in such cases before taking action. Remember that children with chickenpox should never take aspirin, as it could cause Reye's syndrome. (MORE)
No, small pox is a different virus and cannot be caused by Varicella zoster, the virus causing chicken pox.. Small pox is a disease caused by the variola virus. Symptoms include, a characteristic rash, especially on face, arms and legs. The rash mainly starts the 2nd or 3rd day. The resulting spots… become filled with clear liquid, and then fill with pus. Then form a crust, which eventually comes off. Until the crust falls off you are contagious.you also get headaches backaches and a high fever. So small pox and chicken pox are completely different. you are right because you can never get chicken pox and small pox at the SAME time but you may get small pox and then you can get a case of chicken pox. but if you get chicken pox dont worry about getting small pox because small pox is just a bunch of blisters on your body. but the same about both of them is that there are both contagios. so if you touch some one that has smalll pox or chicken pox you have a 78% chance of cathing it and a 22% chance of not getting that disease.

Chickenpox vaccine does not cause shingles directly, but the virus, like naturally-caught virus, stays in the spinal cord and may be reactivated later to cause herpes. The chances are lower with chickenpox vaccine than with chickenpox disease.
Varicella zoster virus causes chickenpox, and herpes simplex virus causes genital herpes, whitlow, and cold sores. They are both members of the herpes virus family.
possibly your diet. . . . severe constipation can be a main factor for all the other symptoms you describe.....get blood tested for diabetes as well .......... You could also be pregnant, those are symptoms of pregnancy.

Men with acute prostatitis often have chills, fever, fatigue, pain in the lower back and genital area, urinary frequency and urgency often at night, burning or painful urination, body aches, and a demonstrable infection of the urinary tract, as evidenced by white blood cells and bacteria in the urin…e.

You feel this mainly at the base of your penis, around your anus, just above your pubic bone and/or in your lower back. Pain may spread to your penis and testes. Passing stools (faeces) can be painful. You may also have symptoms from a urine infection such as pain when you pass urine, passing urine frequently or an urgent desire to pass urine.

You may feel tired, and have general aches and pains. (MORE)
The body sends antibodies (white blood cells/ defender of the body) to attack the antigens (intruder coming into your system) who have taken over the cells of your body to replicate themselves. These antibodies attack the now damaged cell and the antigens in order to fight the varicella (chicken pox…) virus. (MORE)

Various cells are involved. The varicella-zoster virus enters through the respiratory system. Then it is found in the lymph nodes 4-6 days later the virus enters the cells of the spleen and liver. After a week the virus travels to the viscera and skin, causing the typical skin markings.
Chickenpox is not caused by a poxvirus. It's caused by varicella zoster virus, which is a member of the herpes virus group.

Chicken Pox is caused by the Varicella-zoster virus. It belongs to the family of Herpes viruses. Chickenpox seldom causes scarring, yet when it does, the scars most often occur around the eyes and consist of a small depression. Chickenpox lesions can become infected, usually from scratching and most… frequently with bacteria called Staphylococcus. These secondary infections may be severe enough to require hospitalization. The virus is contained in the body fluids and in the lesions of skin and mucosa. It is transmitted from person to person by droplet infection through the respiratory tract. Rarely the condition may be caused by exposure to a case of Herpes Zoster. Once the virus enters the body it rests and reproduces in the lymph nodes of the body for about 3 to 4 days before it travels to the blood to infect the spleen and liver. It finally rests in the nerve roots near the spinal cord till it is activated. No trigger maybe needed for its activation, but sometimes it waits for events like stress or diminished immunity before it attacks. (MORE)

The chicken-pox virus remains in the body. at some later time it may produce other problems like "shingles", a very troublesome and painful inflamation in the nerves.
The chickenpox virus (varicella zoster virus) enters the body through the upper respiratory mucous membranes and reproduces for a little bit. The virus then moves to the lymph nodes, then to the bloodstream, and then the skin cells. Usually the first rash shows in the back or chest. the rash moves t…o the limbs, face, eyelids, and sometimes the mouth. After recovery, the virus remains in part of the spinal cord (the dorsal root ganglia) for the rest of your life. (MORE)
