Chickenpox is an infectious illness that is caused by the varicella zoster virus. It usually starts with one to two days of low-grade fever and fatigue before itchy blisters appear on the trunk, face, and scalp. The infection can be transmitted through direct contact with an infected person or through the air from the infected individual's coughing or sneezing. Serious complications directly related to the chickenpox virus include bleeding problems, infection of the brain, and cerebellar ataxia.
