Is there a way to see if you had chickenpox?

I don't know if I ever had it, but I'm curious. Also does someone know if the chickenpox shot needs to be renewed?

You can have blood work to see if you are immune to the virus. You would only need a booster shot for varicella if you are not immune.  (+ info)

Exposed to chickenpox at 13 weeks pregnant, i have had them before, but should i be worried?

I work with a young girl who has been diagnosed with chickenpox. I have had chicken pox myself when I was about 7 years old. I am 13 weeks pregnant and am worried i may have caught them, because you can catch them twice and symptoms dont show until 2-3 weeks after being exposed. Has anyone else been in a similar situation, if so what did you do?

Yes it is true that you can get chickenpox twice depending on the degree of how bad you got it the first time around. I dont know how old you are but I can tell you that the chances of you getting it again are low.

It also depends on if you have close contact with the girl you work with. In order to get chickenpox you not only have to be exposed to it but it is not airborn so you much be exposed by touching her, drinking after her, using the phone after her etc. It is spread via contact so that means you must have touched her or touched/used something after her. After that you must provide it a way to enter your body like touching/rubbing your eyes, putting your fingers in your mouth, not washing your hands before eating after touching something she did...

Since you are pregnant I would call your OB and tell them that you have been exposed. There is a blood test they can do to see if you have enough antibodies in your system but not sure they would do that since it is a expensive test. I would just call them but I would say that you are more safe then you think since you have had them before.  (+ info)

Can I eat anything if I have chickenpox in my throat?

I have some chickenpox on my tongue and down my throat. What should I do? Do they get infected easily, and can I eat anything?

You can eat whatever you are comfortable eating. try some liquids like soup etc first...then advance to soft food like ice cream, puddings etc. GL When you aren't scratching your chickenpox it's unlikely you will get infected.  (+ info)

how do you protect your skin after you had Chickenpox rash?

I had chickenpox all over my body, what do i do to get my skin back to the way it use to be, my face really looks bad, any advice.

tea tree oil heals skin pretty well... its 100% natural.. and pure.. so it's safe to use. it's also cheap, it can be found at natural medicine stores, or health stores, walgreens, etc..

i'd give it a shot. it does smell pretty strong.. but i use it on my face regularly for acne and you get used to it :)  (+ info)

am I in a higher risk of being infected by chickenpox?

My classmates who had just have chicken pox return to school today. He has been absent for 17 days. He sit behind me today. I havent get my chickenpox yet.

If he's been absent for 17 days, then he is no longer contagious.  (+ info)

My 3 years old has chickenpox,when sleeping and turning spots burst will they leave scars?
i do use gloves and socks to stop her scratching but at night she toss about and some spots do burst, will she have scars?

In some cases yes they will leave a scar.....and you should keep her from scratching so you are doing the right thing by putting gloves/socks on her....Try giving her oatmeal baths if you can, that's what my mom did with us and all 3 of my daughter's got the chicken pox shot...=]  (+ info)
