Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Chickenpox. Face of a 1-year-old child with chickenpox (varicella). This is a common infectious disease of childhood caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It causes headache and fever, followed by the eruption of a rash over most of the body. The rash appears in crops and consists of clusters of small, red, itchy spots that become fluid-filled blisters within a few hours. It is rare to have the disease twice, as a childhood attack confers lifelong immunity. While the disease is not serious in children, in adults it can be dangerous. Calamine lotion (a zinc-based anti-itching lotion) can be used to soothe the skin until the disease clears up.
