In brief: Possible

Chicken pox is a virus that can affect your immunity and if you were inadequately treated for TB, it could be reactivated.
Chicken pox will often cause lymph nodes in the groin, axilla and head and neck to swell, but less likely to have swollen nodes in the chest or abdomen and those warrant more evaluation.
