What is chickenpox?
Chickenpox, also known as varicella, is a very contagious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is spread easily through the air by infected people when they sneeze or cough. The disease also spreads through contact with an infected person's chickenpox blisters. Because chickenpox is very contagious, it is possible for people who have never had chickenpox nor been vaccinated against it to become infected just by being in a room with someone who has the disease. However, transient exposure is not likely to result in infection.Symptoms of chickenpox
Early symptoms may include body aches, fever, fatigue, and irritability. A rash then appears and
develops into as many as 250-500 itchy blisters over the entire body, that usually last for 5-7 days and heal with scabs. The rash may even spread into the mouth or other internal parts of the body. The illness is usually not severe, but the risk of hospitalization and death is increased among adolescents and adults. Symptoms appear between 10 and 21 days after exposure to the varicella-zoster virus. Persons who were vaccinated against chickenpox may sometimes develop chickenpox disease but the presentation is usually mild, with approximately 50 or fewer red bumps that rarely evolve to blisters.
Semalam doc dah sahkan aku terkena jangkitan Chickenpox (varicella). Berjangkit dari anak kawan office aku yang kne chickenpox. Tup tup aku pulak yang kena. Tension mmg tension tapi nak buat cmner, benda nak jadi so aku terima je la. Dapat MC 5 hari duduk kat rumah untuk berehat tp still tak boleh sbb aku tak hantar sara ke pengasuh. Takut aku bagi jangkit org lain pulak.
Doc kata, chichenpox yang menyerang adult lagi teruk compare dgn kena time kecik². Aku akui sbb aku demam teruk sampai menggigil tak ingat. Esoknya baru aku perasan ade biji² air yang banyak kt badan aku dan ade seketul besar kt blkg badan. Arghhhhhhhh!!!!~
