What Is Chickenpox And What Causes It?

Chickenpox is a viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It is also sometimes referred to as varicella (1).

A report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimated that 395 hospital admissions for chickenpox took place in 2016. Out of 395 hospital admissions, 26% (101) were children under the age of 15 years. It was also noted that 93% of 2-year old Australian babies were fully vaccinated against chickenpox.

Signs And Symptoms Of Chickenpox

  • Fluid-filled vesicles that are pink or red
  • Blister-like rashes
  • Itching
  • Fever
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Headache
  • Loss of appetite (2)

How Does Chickenpox Spread?

The chickenpox virus can spread very easily by breathing in the same air as an infected patient or close contact with blisters. An infected person can transmit the disease from 1-2 days before they get rashes until they have healed completely. This contagious period lasts for a few weeks. Even people who took the chickenpox vaccine and still contracted the disease can spread it to others around them (3).

Apart from being highly contagious, this viral infection can create a lot of discomfort. Though there are antiviral medications licensed for the treatment of chickenpox, the remedies given below also provide relief from the symptoms and help recuperate from this infection.

In addition to the above remedies, certain medications also may help ease chickenpox symptoms. Learn more about them in the next section.

Medicine For Chickenpox Treatment

  • Antipyretics (Fever Reducers)

Over-the-counter medicines such as paracetamol may help reduce fever, pain, and discomfort caused by chickenpox.

  • Antihistamines

Your doctor may prescribe a sedative antihistamine to reduce itching and help sleep better at night (30). However, in a study, excess topical application of an antihistamine called diphenhydramine led to bizarre behavior and hallucinations (31). Hence, practice caution when using antihistamines. Never self-prescribe.

Yash Panwar, a blogger, recalled his experience with chickenpox and warned against taking medication without a prescription. He wrote, “I had a fever. I didn’t notice any blisters then, so I thought it was a normal fever and took 3 paracetamols, in total, in 3–4 days. This must have worsened my symptoms somewhere (i).”

Always follow your doctor’s recommendations when taking these medications. Avoid exceeding the recommended dose to prevent adverse effects.
