What is Varicella (Chickenpox)?
Varicella, or what is widely known as “Chickenpox,” is an extremely contagious disease that causes itchy, blister-like rashes to appear on your body, fever, and tiredness. The disease can be serious, especially for adults, infants, and others with weak immune systems.
How do people contract Varicella (Chickenpox)?
Varicella spreads easily from people who have the disease to those who’ve never had it or haven’t been vaccinated. It spreads mainly by breathing in or touching virus particles that come from the blisters. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), they believe that it’s also spread via tiny droplets that get into the air after those infected talk or breathe.

Varicella is a common disease that many children suffer from in the United States. However, it’s also an adult disease that’s present in many tropical areas or climates.
