My son recently got a very severe case of chickenpox requiring hospital admission and developed a secondary infection and cellulitis of the eye. Will my daughter who suffers febrile seizures also get the same severity of it?

In brief: Hard to predict

Her history of febrile seizures would have no relationship to whether or not she has a significant problem. Incubation period is 10-21 days with average 14.
If she breaks out and you bathe her often & monitor the spots, you can stop most 2ndary infections before they get out of hand.
