Contact with Chicken pox

Hi I was in close contact i.e. sleeping in the same room as my friend who had fever but later was diagnosed with chicken pox. Now I am back at home but I feel itchy all over me. I cant see any rashes or spots.. I'v never had CP before. On my face cheeks, there is a light dry skin type rash all of a sudden.

hello definitely chicken pox can spread 4 days before and 5 days after onset of rash consult physician for further evaluation and treatment and also keep in mind it can spread so better to be in isolation.
