Do shingles blisters look like chicken pox and are real sore?

Often shingles hurt

Shingles
And for some people they hurt a lot, and leaving lasting pain, long after the blisters are gone. That said, some shingles are painless. Go to your dermatologist, he can not only look for the characteristic distribution, but he can also give you medicines to help with the pain and side effects

What exactly does it mean when blisters from chicken pox start to pop?

Natural progression

Chickenpox
The lesions of Cpx go through a natural progression from tiny blister to larger blister to pop & crust, all within a single day. The material within the blister contains infectious virus initially but it will eventually dry out & the virus will die. A person is considered contagious until their last blister has popped and dried out.

Is it actually true that blisters in chicken pox will create permanent scars?

Possibly

Scars
Most of the average 200 spots of a chickenpox breakout will leave no scars. They occur in the top layer of the skin so little disruption occurs for most.However, a contamination of the initial blister with other germs like staph or strep & scratching by the patient can sometimes aggravate some if the spots & leave scars.

Can I have chicken pox?how fast do they spread? My rash is red bumps that resemble small blisters ans they itch.

Maybe,maybe not

Red_bumps
CPx is a contagious disease that can spread via droplet contact to anyone who is not immune to the disease. The incubation averages 2 wks & the rash starts out like small bumps that enlarge & fill with fluid before opening & crusting all in 1-2 days. Often starting around the neck/face,they can progress to involve any skin surface. Blisters continue to come out for 6-7d.

I have chicken pox and have blisters all over my body. Is it true that if I puncture the blisters they leave a permanent scar?

Chicken pox scars

Scarring
Blisters represent a partial thickness limited injury to the skin that will heal in three weeks without scar, similar to a second degree burn. However, broken blisters may expose the deeper dermis to infection, dessication, or additional trauma that may cause full thickness injury and resultant scar that may be permanent. Best not to disturb pox blisters, and try to keep the broken ones clean.
