Chickenpox (varicella)

Did you know that scratching chickenpox blisters or scabs can let bacteria in, leading to other skin infections?

Suffering through chickenpox was once a right of passage. Now we know the virus stays in your body and can cause shingles later in life. Anyone who has suffered the pain of shingles will tell you it is no joke. Spare yourself the experience, consider getting the chicken pox or shingles vaccines.
