In brief: Rarely

A raised scar occurring in an area of a skin lesion from chicken pox is most likely a keloid or a hypertrophic scar. A physician can check any skin spot or lump that is tender, itching, oozing, scaly, doesn't heal, has irregular color, swollen, or any other changes that worry you and make suggestions for further evaluation.
