The incubation period is followed by an infectious. The first symptoms are fever, shivering, pains in the head and abdomen, and general malaise. Characteristic rashes, which can easily identify chickenpox, appear after two days: small spots spread throughout the body, which itch a lot, then they turn into papules - small nodules, then they become bubbles, and after a few days they dry up, becoming covered with crusts. The crusts disappear a few weeks after the first symptoms appear.
In the mild form of the disease, a person feels only a slight deterioration, the temperature rarely exceeds 38 � C, there are few eruptions, they disappear in a few days. In severe form, the rash appears not only on the skin, but also on the mucous membranes, there is a very high temperature and severe itching.

During the febrile period of the disease, bed rest should be followed; if there is severe itching, it is advisable to use antihistamines. It is very important not to overheat, otherwise the itching will intensify.
