5 doctors agree

In brief: 4-7 days

We don't see chicken pox very often anymore due to the vaccine.
The illness can last a long time 5-7 days and sometimes more. He is considered not conagious when the last pox scabs over.

Varies with the kid.Most have cabin fever and are ready to get out and play long before they stop being contagious. Cpx kids also sunburn easily.
