home remedy for chickenpoxChickenpox is a highly contagious infection caused by the varicella zoster virus. This itchy skin rash turns to blisters as it spreads over the entire body. Other symptoms include fatigue, fever, and loss of appetite.

Chickenpox usually lasts 7–10 days and passes through 3 distinct phases. During the first phase that lasts about 3 days, the skin breaks out in red bumps. For roughly 3 more days, those bumps fill with pus and turn into blisters. During the third stage, those blisters pop, drain, and form scabs.

Chickenpox can happen to people of any age, but it most commonly afflicts children under 12. Pregnant women and those with weak immune systems are also more prone to contract the illness.
