Currently, the hot late spring weather and high air humidity make us susceptible to infectious diseases such as measles, mumps, and fever, including chickenpox. According to the understanding of many people, if chickenpox is infected once, it will not be completely contracted again. However, you need to carefully learn the symptoms and why some people get chickenpox a second time and can be immune to it through the following article:

  • Causes of Chickenpox transmission:

Chickenpox is an acute infectious disease caused by the Varicella zoster virus (VZV). The disease is transmitted directly from person to person through respiratory secretions (droplets from sneezing or coughing containing viruses) or fluid in blisters on the skin (chickenpox spots). The disease spreads at a dizzying speed and is more severe in children under 5 years old.

  • Typical symptoms of Chickenpox:

Typical symptoms are blisters all over the body accompanied by fever, fatigue, headache and loss of appetite. 

Symptoms usually appear 14-16 days after first contact with the sick person.

  • Symptoms of chickenpox:

+ Mild fever for 1-2 days at 38 degrees Celsius.

+ Feeling of fatigue, loss of appetite, body aches and rashes all over the body.

+ Chickenpox rash usually appears as red dots at first, then develops into blisters.

+ The rash first appears on the head, face, neck, trunk and limbs.

+ Chickenpox rash is often very itchy.

These symptoms are often more obvious and severe in adults. 

The time for small round spots (chickenpox or warts) will appear in about 12 – 24 hours. Chickenpox spots quickly spread throughout the body and limbs, then progress into blisters ranging in size from 3 – 10mm containing clear fluid. After 24 hours, this fluid will turn cloudy and blisters may develop on the oral mucosa. 

Infection and secondary infection in blisters are common phenomena in young children due to broken, scratched, peeling blisters leading to infection, pus formation, and ulcers. These acne spots can later leave deep scars that are difficult to treat.

  • If you have chickenpox, can you get infected again?

People who are immunocompromised and weak will have a high risk of getting chickenpox a second time because they live in an environment where bacteria and viruses thrive. 

  • What to do if you suspect you have chickenpox?

Isolate from people around you.

Clean personal hygiene.

Avoid scratching chickenpox spots.

Use a soft towel soaked in water to wipe the child’s body and wash gently.

Eat nutritious food, eat soft, easily digestible foods such as porridge, soup… drink lots of water such as filtered water, broth and eat more fruits with vitamin supplements such as oranges, bananas…


Nature Pharma’s Manginovim topical solution contains the active ingredient Mangiferin (mango leaf extract) to help inhibit the activity of the virus that causes chickenpox.
