    a virus (varicella) infection that is very contagious. there is a vaccine which can build immunity to the infection. if you had chicken pox as a child, the virus is dormant in your body. when your immune system weakens with age the infection resprouts as shingles.

    The varicella-zoster virus causes chickenpox. Most cases occur through contact with an infected person. The virus may be contagious several days before blisters appear,and it remains contagious until all blisters have crusted over. It is spread through saliva,coughing,sneezing and contact with blisters.

    Every one has chicken pox, it is a virus in the body ready to explode one day. After it exploded, your body is better immune to other infections
