What is Varicella-Zoster Virus?

Chickenpox is a common infection that’s primarily associated with children, although you can be affected at any age. The infection is caused by the Varicella Zoster Virus, which is spread through contact with infected water droplets from coughing or sneezing, saliva or fluid from infected blisters.

The infection will usually clear on it’s own within a couple of weeks, and symptoms will begin to develop up to 3 weeks post exposure, being the most infectious 1-2 days prior to the occurrence of a rash. Symptoms include headache, fever, malaise and a very itchy rash.

Complications are rare, but may arise in those who are considered high risk, this can be those who are immuno-compromised or when pregnant.

Varicella-Zoster can lay dormant for years in nerve cells of the skin and reactivate as Shingles, Herpes Zoster.
