Varicella (Chicken Pox)
By: Nolan Ruhland
Contact with an affected infected person by airborne respiratory droplets (coughs or sneezes). By skin-to-skin contact (handshakes or hugs). By saliva (kissing or shared drinks). By mother to baby by pregnancy, labor, or nursing. By touching a contaminated surface (blanket or doorknob).
How virus replicates
Acyclovir (Zovirax), Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), Acetaminophen (Tylenol) are some drugs you can take to treat chicken pox.
Varicella vaccine, having Chickenpox before, and the antibody immunoglobulin (Medication) are some ways to prevent getting varicella.
