Chickenpox is very itchy and can make children feel miserable, even if they don't have many spots. Chickenpox is usually much worse in adults.

It's possible to get chickenpox more than once, although it's unusual.

Things you can do yourself

You'll need to stay away from school, nursery or work until all the spots have crusted over. This is usually 5 days after the spots first appeared.

Don't

  • use Ibuprofen unless advised to do so by your doctor, as it may cause serious skin infections

  • give Aspirin to children under 16

  • be around pregnant women, new-born babies and people with a weakened immune system, as it can be dangerous for them
