Dr. Colin Kerr
Family Medicine
In brief: Chicken pox
Yes. The virus, while infected individuals are still developing new lesions, is highly contagious through skin to skin contact.
If you care for an infected individual, you can carry the virus to another person unless you use very careful handwashing.
