Chickenpox in Baby Pictures - 40 Photos & Images

Chicken pox (or varicella) is a viral infection that causes a unique rash. Kids with chicken pox typically develop fluid-filled blisters that usually start on the chest and then spread to the arms and legs. The classic description of a chicken pox rash is that the spots first look like dewdrops on a rose petal. Affected kids may also have a fever. Most people think of chicken pox as a relatively mild disease β€” and it can be. But be warned: It can also turn serious. β€œIn a minority of cases, it can go into the liver. It can also get into the brain and cause very serious illness and even death.

Most of the time, though, chicken pox lasts four to seven days. The blisters eventually pop and scab over. Your child is considered contagious until the rash scabs over.
