Don't worry: Usually, the fact that an adult gets chickenpox only means that you didn't get it as a child; nothing more. If your doctor is not worried, your kids should not be either.

No worry: As long as they have received their varicella vaccine or has chicken pox, it is very unlikely there will be an issue.
