If I was exposed to chicken pox 3 weeks ago, I have abdominal pain and fluid filled lesions on my upper trunk and face, which are beginning to open, crust over and some are begining to heal. I have had chicken pox as a child, so what would this be, I was told you can not get chicken pox twice. Is is shingles? Impetigo? What do you all think about this?Thanks for your help!!!!
You can in fact get chicken pox twice, especially if you first contracted while younger and a mild case of it. Sounds as if you have it. Take Avenno baths, its a powder type stuff you put in the tub, it helps with the itching and healing of the blisters. Shingles on the other hand, are extreme painful. I don't think you have that.
