Chickenpox is a common childhood illness caused by the zoster virus. It is a highly contagious disease that usually affects little children and typically causes a mild fever and itchy skin blisters. These blisters first appear as red spots on the body, then dry in about 4 to 5 days and leave their place to scabs. If these scabs are scratched or infected with bacteria, they can cause scarring. Virapoxx Gel, which has a cooling effect for chickenpox, protects the skin and helps to reduce long-term scars by allowing the skin recover itself naturally.
