I wish: It clears up on its own. You have to treat the symptoms only and watch for signs of infection or other complication. Vaccination helps prevent the infection.

Pox scar help : Some scars (regardless of what caused them--acne, varicella, laceration) can be treated by dermatologists with laser, serums, fillers. Would recommend having your GP check it and make a recommendation as to whether it is the sort of scar that might respond to treatment

Fresh ones?: Chickenpox marks after an acute infection will fade in time. You can use cocoa butter or shea butter to help them but they will fade. Many people do have that one scar that does not go away and is their honor mark showing they did have chickenpox.

Need to get rid of chicken pox marks.it's been two years since i got affected by chickenpox .suggest anything that will make the marks disappear soon.

Chicken pox scars: Chicken pox or varicella is a nasty viral infection that can leave unsightly scars. The body will try to 'remodel' a scar for a period up to about 2 years -- after that you are 'stuck' with what you have... unless of course a plastic surgeon comes to the rescue. These days there are a number of cosmetic procedures that may help - but of course will be costly, as these are 'elective' in nature.

Plastic surgery: This is never cheap. A scar on your head should not generally be increasing in size. Please at least let a doctor see this.

I was in contact with a child with chicken pox today, is it effective for me to get the vaccine now to prevent me from getting chicken pox?

I was in contact with a child with chicken pox today, is it effective for me to get the vaccine now to prevent me from getting chicken pox?

Get some protection: The incubation for chicken pox is about 10-21 days (time of contact to development of disease), and vaccine results in some immnity as early as 10 days as well and excellent by 3 weeks time. So, in your case, you will likely get some protection. However, it is a good chance that you are already immuned to it..Likely exposure to it when u were younger..Consult your doc. Good luck.

What happens if I have just been exposed to the chicken pox, can I get a vaccine now to prevent breaking out in the rashes?

Possibly: About 96% of adults that don't remember having CPX have blood evidence of prior infection and immunity.If you had it, you are likely immune.Post exposure vaccination may help prevent or decrease the intensity of the disease,but should be done within 72 hrs.

Can you tell me if I have just been exposed to the chicken pox, can I get a vaccine now to prevent breaking out in the rashes?

Can you tell me if I have just been exposed to the chicken pox, can I get a vaccine now to prevent breaking out in the rashes?

Depends on variables: If you had it as a kid or were immunized (started mid 90's) you have little to worry about.A vaccination now would not stop the progression of the illness or treat it. If susceptible, you can count forward 10-21 days from exposure as the time you would break out. Oral meds could be helpful if you do. Those at high risk due to chemo/cancer can sometimes obtain vzig (immune globulin) to prevent it.

Small pox vaccine scar even though born in the 90's (and 89), why is this and can I get rid of it?

Small pox vaccine scar even though born in the 90's (and 89), why is this and can I get rid of it?

The way it was given: Small Pox vaccine was not given with hypoderm needle. We used a bifurcate needle dip in vaccine and puncture the skin superficially a number of times. If vaccine is successful a red and itchy bump appears at the site of vaccination in3to4days and in first week it becomes a large blisterand begins to drain.It begins to dry up in second week and scabs.The scab falls in 3rd week and leaves ugly scar
