It may start with fever but to diagnose chicken pox, the rash needs to be there, first as pimple like then excoriated then scabed.

If you have chicken pox during early pregnancy, is your baby then immune to chicken pox?

No.

Baby
Early in pregnancy (first 3 months), there is very little chance that the fetus will develop chickenpox, and even then, fetuses don't have an immune system yet and can't develop immunity. Chickenpox later in pregnancy can be serious business, however. Even if you're early, you need to inform your obstetrician, who may wish to treat you with acyclovir even though risks at that stage are small.

If you have chicken pox VZIG during early pregnancy, is the child then immune to chicken pox?

Probably not

Small_papular_lesions,_each_on_a_separate_reddened_base
If you got VZIG during early or mid pregnancy, it was likely an effort to avoid CP during pregnancy & possible effects on the fetus. VZIG is a transient protection, lasting at high levels for the first wk & dropping off to nothing after a month or so. If it was given within a wk or so of birth, baby might have transient protection. If earlier, I wouldn't count on it.

My dad got the shingles at age 30. Can I get it early to? at age 18? I've had chicken pox when I was 5. I'm 18 now

Maybe,maybe not

Chickenpox
Shingles are a curious problem that happens when the chickenpox virus emerges from a state of hibernation and travels down a nerve root to the skin. It has been known to happen from infancy to old age and the trigger for its occurrence is not always evident. There is no reason to consider you more or less likely to have it when your parent did at a young age.

My nieces has chicken pox they are scabed are they contiguous at this stage?

Chickenpox

Chickenpox
Generally the lesions are considered no longer contagious when the blisters are gone and scabbed over. I would still use caution and avoid direct contact to be safe if one has not had varicella or chicken pox before .
