Chicken Pox Treatment

The varicella-zoster virus is what causes chickenpox, an itchy rash of blisters all over the body that comes along as well as flu-like systems.  Chickenpox typically affects young children, but adults who never received a vaccination are also susceptible to it. It is very rare to have chicken pox more than once, but it is also highly contagious.  

The varicella-zoster virus will live in the body for about three weeks before the blisters, rash, and other symptoms (such as fever, loss of appetite, and headaches) start to appear. It can take up to or more than two weeks for a chickenpox infection to go away. During that time, the rash will typically go through three stages. Additionally, the rash will appear at different parts of the body over time.  

Chickenpox is contagious until the scabbed over rashes fall off or go away. Trained EZCare Clinic practitioners are ready to help patients more comfortable if they are suffering from chickenpox.
