Biomarker profile

  • Immunity

Immunity (1 Biomarker)

Chicken pox is a very common infection which normally affects children under the age of 10. In children It is generally a mild infection which is why most parents actively try to expose their child to chicken pox when they are young so that they acquire immunity. In adults the symptoms can be more severe and can lead to more complications. 

Some groups of people are at higher risk of complications if they are become infected with chicken pox: these include pregnant women and people who have weakened immune systems. 

Shingles is caused by the same virus (varicella zoster) that causes chicken pox.
