Best Answer

Chickenpox can happen more than once once (I've seen it happen), but usually it only comes once in a lifetime.

Unfortunately, later in life you can suffer shingles, because chickenpox is caused by a virus which never leaves the body and settles, lying dormant for years, in nerve roots. When your immune system is depressed or weakened, the virus can be reactivated as a shingles infection.
