Chickenpox is a viral infection that mainly affects children. However, adults can still contract the disease. Babies up to six months old are immune from the disease but it is best not to allow contact with children who have chickenpox when it is in the contagious stage.
What to look for if you suspect chickenpox: your child may feel unwell or seem to have a slight cold the day before any rash appears. This starts as a red spotty rash and is itchy. The rash soon becomes raised and forms pimples which become blisters. In about 4 days the blisters form scabs. This process continues until the whole rash has formed crusts.
As chickenpox is a highly contagious disease, your child should be kept home from school and away from other children until the rash has formed scabs and any fever has gone. The disease can be transferred to other children by droplets from the nose or mouth when they talk, cough, sneeze, or by direct contact with the rash or sores. The first symptoms of chickenpox usually appear between 12 to 21 days after contact with an infected person.
