Chickenpox: Chickenpox is not a rash that keeps recurring. A rash from Chickenpox often occurs first on trunk (chest/back) & then moves to face & then extremities. The rash becomes blisters that itch. Blisters usually have all transformed into scabs in about a week. Your doctor may be able to shed light on the cause of your recurring rash.
