Chicken Pox picture
Chicken pox is a common disease caused by the varicella zoster virus which is a member
of the herpes virus family. It is very contagious and usually occurs during childhood.
Adults can get the disease if they did not have it in childhood.
Chicken Pox symptoms
A skin rash of blister-like lesions, covering the body but usually more
concentrated on the face, scalp, and trunk. Most, but not all, infected
individuals have fever, which develops just before or when the rash appears. If
exposed, persons who have been vaccinated against the disease may get a milder
illness, with less severe rash (sometimes involving only a few red bumps that
look similar to insect bites) and mild or no fever.
