In brief: Not the best idea.

There is no medical reason to prevent you from having sex while one of you has chicken pox.
You have obviously already had shared exposure to the illness. However, patients with chicken pox are usually quite sick with fever and flu-type symptoms and are physically uncomfortable. I would advise you give it a rest until the patient feels fine and nothing remains but a few scabbed and drying pox..

In brief: Itchy affair

It may turn out to be an itchy affair. If youve had chicken pox, no problem , otherwise stay away.
