Chicken pox

Chicken pox is a highly contagious viral infection. It is characterised by blister-like rashes that first occur on the face & then spread throughout the body. Although it is usually seen in children, adults with a weak immune system can also suffer from this condition. Some of the early symptoms of this condition include fever, headaches, sore throat & weakness. However in certain cases, a patient may suffer from skin rashes & not display any of these symptoms.
