Description:This image depicts the face of an adult African-America male upon which is visible the a maculopapular rash, which was diagnosed a being caused by the varicella zoster virus, also known as chickenpox.
The classic symptom of chickenpox is a rash that turns into itchy, fluid-filled blisters that eventually turn into scabs. The rash may first show up on the face, chest, and back then spread to the rest of the body, including inside the mouth, eyelids, or genital area. It usually takes about one week for all the blisters to become scabs.

Other typical symptoms that may begin to appear 1-2 days before rash include:

- high fever

- tiredness

- loss of appetite

- headache

Children usually miss 5 to 6 days of school or childcare due to their chickenpox.
