Summary

Until relatively recently, chicken pox was a rite of passage for children and was often looked upon as just a nuisance, although this illness can cause complications in some people. Though the development and use of a chicken pox vaccine has reduced the number of chicken pox cases, the unvaccinated remain vulnerable. In addition, shingles, a painful condition that can arise after an initial chicken pox infection, is a concern, particularly in older people. Chicken Pox, Second Edition presents an overview of this disease caused by a herpesvirus known as the varicella-zoster virus, explaining the signs and symptoms of the disease, how it spreads, how it is treated, and how the development of a vaccine has affected the incidence of chicken pox. 

Chapters include:

  • What Is Chicken Pox?
  • The History of Chicken Pox
  • Chicken Pox in Young Children
  • Chicken Pox in Infants and Adults
  • How Is Chicken Pox Diagnosed and Treated?
  • How Is Chicken Pox Prevented?
  • What Is Shingles?
  • The Future of Chicken Pox and Shingles.
