When you're suffering from the chicken pox virus, there are several symptoms that occur as your body's response to this virus. The intensity of these chicken pox symptoms are usually determined by how strong your immune system is. Many children have not developed a strong immune system, so they're more likely to experience more chicken pox symptoms than teens or adults. Make sure you take note of any of the chicken pox symptoms you may be aware below in yourself or your family member.
This list below are all the most common symptoms that can occur:

This skin disease is an extremely contagious disease that infects approximately 3 million people in the United States each year. More than 90% of the cases occur in children less than 12 years old.
This skin condition, while most believe to be mild, is not meant to be taken lightly. Each year in the United States, 4,000 to 9,000 people are hospitalized with this skin condition, and up to 100 persons die.
