Chickenpox Treatments

Keen PharmacyMedicinesChickenpox Treatments

Chickenpox is a common childhood disease that is caused by the varicella zoster virus. It is a highly contagious infectious disease usually affecting young children. It typically produces a mild fever and an itchy outbreak of skin blisters. The blisters usually first appear as red spots on the chest and stomach, and then spread over the entire body. The blisters become dry and form into scabs in around 4 to 5 days. If these scabs are scratched or become infected with bacteria, they may then cause scarring.

As a word of caution if you have had chickenpox as a child it is possible that you could develop shingles in later life usually after the age of 50 years. A new vaccine is now available (not currently on the NHS) to prevent shingles and post-herpetic neuralgia in adults aged 50 years or over. You can obtain this vaccine privately if you speak to your doctor.

If you have any questions or would like more information please call the pharmacist on 01260 295701.
