Hello, Chickenpox is highly contagious to those who haven't had the disease or been vaccinated against it. The most characteristic symptom is an itchy, blister-like rash on the skin. Chickenpox can be prevented by a vaccine. . Good personal hygiene (by daily warm water bath), good hydration, and paracetamol 650mg, three times a day after food is enough for minor illness. If it is increasing antivirals as to be considered. Please consult a physician.
