Caption: Chickenpox in adult. Chickenpox seen all over the back of a 19 year-old man. Chicken pox (varicella) is a common childhood disease that is rare but severe in adults. Two weeks after infection a rash (red, itchy spots that blister) appears, this is accompanied by fever. Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is spread by airborne droplets. Paracetamol is taken to relieve fever; in severe cases acyclovir (an antiviral drug) is prescribed. Calamine lotion is often used to relieve the itchiness of the rash.
