Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of chickenpox?
The chickenpox infection generally lasts about seven to ten days. The first phase of the illness is characterized by flu-like symptoms such as fever, malaise, headaches and fatigue. The rash generally appears one to two days after the onset of flu-like symptoms. At first, the rash is made up of spreading red bumps. The bumps eventually turn into blisters that break and weep fluid. After several days the blisters crust over and form scabs.
How long is chickenpox contagious?
A person is considered contagious from two days before the rash forms until all the blisters have crusted over.
When do you need to see a doctor for chickenpox?
Chickenpox is diagnosed when the doctor examines the characteristic rash. In healthy children the disease usually resolves without complications. For people who have a higher risk for severe disease or complications antiviral medications can be prescribed to shorten the course of infection and decrease its severity.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
