Symptoms of Chicken Pox
The symptoms of chicken pox are worse in adults than children. Symptoms include -
► Body ache and mild fever (before the onset of the disease).
► Fatigue, irritability and sore throat.
► Rashes break out on the day the fever starts.
► A skin rash or lesion on the chest, back, shoulders, scalp, or other areas.
► Lesions on the mouth, vagina, rectum, eye, or other mucus membranes.
► Itchy, blistering rash develops into as many as 250-500 blisters within couple of hours.
► Crusting, after the blister breaks, occurs after two to four days.
► Crusts become progressively darker with time and form scale like structure called scab. Scabs fall off in about 9-13 days.
