Chickenpox Treatment Online

Varicella or “chickenpox” is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is highly contagious and causes an itchy, uncomfortable rash. Before the chickenpox vaccine was available almost everybody developed the disease during childhood. While in most people chickenpox is relatively mild it can cause serious disease in certain populations and lead to complications. Because of this, it’s recommended that most people receive the chickenpox vaccine.


If you do get chickenpox, PlushCare makes treatment available online, so seeing a doctor is easy and convenient. You can also get necessary prescriptions sent to your pharmacy from a PlushCare doctor. Try our chickenpox online prescription service today.

Check Your Symptoms

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. A person is considered contagious from two days before the rash forms until all the blisters have crusted over.

Treatment Options

Treating 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. If you or your child has chickenpox, book an appointment with a PlushCare doctor to learn your treatment options.
