Yes, it can be. Blood pressure is taken at a certain point in time; it will fluctuate (going both higher and lower) depending on your circumstances and activities. High blood pressure can lead to stroke and cardiovascular disease. You should see your regular doctor or a cardiologist to determine whether there is an underlying cause of this and whether you should be on medication.

Prescription only: All treatments for chlamydia are oral medications available by prescription only. You should see a doctor ASAP.

Usually yes: The rash of chickenpox starts out as red, itchy or painful blisters; then they open up and scab over and then they will commonly look darker than normal skin for weeks or months. The skin should get flatter and smoother and the color should fade over time but it may take months or more. Some people will still have some residual spots even years later.
