Information About Chickenpox

Nearly everyone is familiar with chickenpox -- the characteristic blister-like rash often accompanied by itching, fatigue, and fever -- but did you know that there is now a vaccine that can help prevent it? This has caused the number of cases reported each year to drop dramatically.
 
When a person is exposed to the virus that causes chickenpox, it can take one to two days for symptoms to appear. The condition is typically treated at home and involves relieving symptoms as the body fights the infection.
