Yes: I have read of a small fraction of the population that has trouble developing immunity to this virus that may have repeated attacks. Infants who have it in their first year may only develop partial immunity&have it again. In many cases what was thought was chicken pox in the past may have been another of the blistering ailments like hand/foot/mouth virus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
