Chicken Pox / Herpes Zoster

Chickenpox is a very contagious infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It mainly affects kids, but adults can get it, too. The telltale sign of chickenpox is a super-itchy skin rash with red blisters. Over the course of several days, the blisters pop and start to leak. Then they crust and scab over before finally healing.

Once you’ve had chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus stays in your nerve cells for years. It can “wake up” and become active again years later. It can lead to shingles, a condition that causes painful blisters.

Both chicken pox and herpes zoster are self limiting conditions. Treatment is prescribed to alleviate symptoms. At Skin zone Clinic, we offer satisfactory and effective treatment to heal both conditions.
