Don't get too happy just yet. People who have had chicken pox can develop another disease later called "shingles". Shingles can cause a rash, itch and everyone says alot of pain.

i think everyone have it once in life and me too when i was small.yeah,much itching occurs.when i was giving my exams of tenth my friend with whom i went to give exam had this.i was very afraid because at that time i didnt wanted to get it because most important exams of my life was going on. that night some mosquitoes bit me and i thought i too got this chicken pox,and instead of learning and preaparing for the other days exam i started panic. other day my exam went bad just because i thought i got chicken pox which i hadn't.

i never had chicken pox in my entire life and had heard that a person does get affected by it atleast once in his or hr lifetime. so i got myself vaccinated just few months back against it.

I did have my chicken pox unfortunately on my 3rd year high school time. It was horrible because it was on my final exams week. I had to go extra few weeks for my projects and was not given a good grade huhuhu.. but fortunately I didn't get much marks on my face or scars since I took very expensive medicines to avoid the scars.
