Can you get chicken pox if been vacenated already? If so what are signs of chicken pox? How to know it's not just rash? On methotrexate for jra

Depends. In the ideal situation, a chicken pox vaccine would fully protect you from chicken pox. For a vaccine to work, however, a functional immune system is necessary and a patient with jra on mtx may not respond to a vaccine normally. Probably the more likely explanation, however, is it is something else. Consider being seen by your md or a dermatologist where they could look and tell you the cause. Read more...
Yes but less likely. Anyone who has had the chicken pox vaccine can still get chicken pox. It may be much milder though. Also, some people don't respond to the chicken pox vaccine for a variety of reasons so the only way to know is to get chicken pox immunoglobulin levels checked. Any kids who are on Methotrexate for jia/jra can fight off chicken pox, but kids on Enbrel humira, or Remicade (infliximab) can get very sick--call doc. Read more...
