Chickenpox: Vaccine as with any other vaccines can cause redness and slight swelling at the site of shot. The first vaccine will give you 95% protection and close to 100% the second time around. Some people will come down with mild chickenpox after the shot. If not sure, please consult with your physician. ...Read more

I have blood blisters or boils on my chest. They hurt especially when you touch it. I have dark spots from old ones. How do I get rid and prevent them?

Abscesses?: Abscesses, boils, small carbuncles, etc. or whatever they may be called are very tough to treat and are often caused by underlying bacterial skin infections that occur locally and can "come and go." As you desribed, they may leave scars or marks where they were. See a Dr. for an exam as sometimes daily antibiotic treatment for suppression may be helpful, etc. Best wishes. ...Read more

Shingles: Sounds like the rash that goes along with shingles. The rash is usually more isolated and in a pattern. I would seek care and evaluation asap as this can benefit from early intervention with medications. ...Read more
