I woke up today with spots all over my body, like small blisters, my mum is convinced its Chicken Pox, because my niece had it a couple of weeks ago.

Ive never had it, my mum exposed me as a child but i never caught it for some reason, but why now! Its my 18th birthday in 11 days, looks like i might not be able to go out afterall :(

Whats the age everyone else has had chicken pox?

Thats horrible! Don't scratch them, you might end up with scars. Get some lotion to put on them :(

Yea my mum gave me the lecture on not scratching them, i think ive got enough willpower to do it, i scratched a few this morning, but like as i woke up, so i didnt know what they were lol.

Chicken Pox is human herpes virus 3 (HHV-3). They should turn into blisters and scab within a week. They can scar easily so be careful! Calamine lotion should help with the itching. :)

Wow, that really sucks!

I had mine not too long ago, last September. I did have a mild form of it when i was younger and i don't remember that. But man, do they ever suck.

And right now i'm 15 (turning 16).

Im 18 and have never had it! All my siblings have and friends too.

I hope I have a natural resistance against it and I have not just been lucky.

Why dont we get a vaccine against it? I got one for measles etc when I was in primary school and high school.

I thought i had a natural resistance from it, until today lmao.

Same thing happened to me a few years ago. I was exposed to chickenpox as a kid but never got infected...then I got into contact with it again at 19 and it was a hell of trouble. But it was a particularly nasty strain I caught, the kid that gave it to me was even worse off than me. I hope what you have is just normal chickenpox and that you'll get better soon :hug: Just remember not to scratch!

About the chickenpox vaccine, yes there is one but it's not very popular because it can have side-effects. Or so I've heard.

LOL! That would be funny, i wonder if she would have the will power to not scratch them.

I've never had it, so stay away from me you leper................. :ton: ... :D

LMAO! Dont worry, im keeping well away from everyone.

I was saying to my niece, shes only like 18 months old, but i said to her this morning,

Me - "This is all your fault you know?"

She just gave me this weird look and said "Yea" One of the only words she can say at the moment.

Me - "Good so at least you know that"

Lmao! Bless her.

I had chickenpox when I was 15. At first it was just a few spots, and I thought it was insect bites or something, then a couple of days later I woke up to find they'd spread everywhere. It was awful, but 'one of those things' that everyone has to put up with. I think the earlier you get it out of the way the better. :)

Just don't scratch them. I confess I have one little pox scar on my face. :o :D

Bad to hear that, Nephili. :( I had chicken pox when I was really young. Just be sure to stay calm for a few days and do not scratch! Get well soon! :wve:

oh man! Chicken Pox! Sorry Nephili ;) Well, it's probably one of the easiest illnessess. You just keep itching instead of feeling really sick. (at least that's how it was for me anyway :whi: ) I was bout 8 or 9 when I had it. It's probably the best to get during school, so you can take a few days off! :p
