Caption: This image depicted a close view of a patient’s forehead, reveling a maculopapular rash, due to a case of chickenpox, caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), also known as Human herpesvirus 3 (HHV-3). The photograph was captured during the sixth-day of the rash, and you can see that some of these fluid-filled papules had ruptured, and had begun to form their characteristic crusty surface.
