Chickenpox is not a serious illness but it can be very uncomfortable for children as the symptoms are similar to flu-with a very itchy rash. Children only usually get the illness once and immunisation is not routinely available on the NHS. If you are concerned that your child (or yourself) are at risk of catching a serious illness as a result of chickenpox then speak to MUMS GPs regarding Vaccination.

Chickenpox (known as Varicella) is caused by a virus called the Varicella Zoster virus. It spreads quickly through the coughs and sneezes of someone who is infected. If you are in close contact with somebody with a weakened immune system, the vaccine reduces the chance of infection.
