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.
