Caption: Chickenpox in an adult. Chickenpox, or varicella, is a viral infection. It is highly contagious, and is characterised by a rash of small, itchy red spots. These quickly turn into blisters, then form scabs. The acute stage of the infection lasts a few days, but full recovery may take a further seven to ten days. The incidence of chickenpox in adults is low: about 75% of children become infected at some stage and re-infection is uncommon. When this does occur, however, the infection tends to be more pronounced. There is no treatment for chickenpox, but the itchiness of the spots may be alleviated with lotions or antihistamines.
