Hi there...i can understand your concern. If your mother has had chicken pox before, then she can't get it again. The immunity which one individual develops when they get chicken pox first time is life long. But it is difficult to know if she had chicken pox earlier because many diseases can look similar to chicken pox. Kindly consult a general physician for further queries.
