Why doesn't chickenpox spread like the common fever ?

It does

Bird_flu
If a common fever is l a viral infection, chicken pox spreads the same way respiratory droplet, more infective before the rash, but so many adults and kids either had the chicken pox or r vaccine it won't be as prevalent

Is it possible to have a little fever in chickenpox when no new blister is appearing ???

Prodrome

Low_grade_fever
Chickenpox actually becomes contagious and erupts 10-21 days after your exposure (ave 14) and many will experience a low grade fever during the prodrome or blood phase that occurs in the days before you break out. After the rash has appeared and subsided (ave 6-7 days) any new fever should be monitored as evidence of a new, possibly related problem.A cellulitis or other issue may emerg.

My 4 year old has some fever and aches now, but he had contact with child that developed chickenpox.?

If no rash...

...then it's unlikely to be chicken pox, although not unheard of. Fever and aches accompany pretty much any viral illness of childhood, and there are literally hundreds of them. If it persists or gets worse, let your pediatrician have a look.

Husband has itchy rash(blister)looking on hands,feet,face&and some on torso.One day fever only,already had chickenpox.?

Rash

Small_papular_lesions,_each_on_a_separate_reddened_base
Serious rashes are usually caused by allergic reactions, disorders of the immune system, or by poisonous byproducts of an infection. Blisters in these disorders are usually caused when the proteins that connect layers of skin are attacked. Because the proteins holding them together aren't working, the layers of skin come apart, and fluid fills the space between them, thus forming the blister.
