This 1969 photograph depicts a close view of the left side of a patient’s face, who was ill with chickenpox, demonstrating the difference between smallpox, and chickenpox, on the 5th day of this rash. By the 5th day of chickenpox, the rash can be observed on the face. Many of the pocks have scabs, whereas, there are no scabs present by the 5th day of smallpox. Both papules and vesicles can be seen, with a few pustules present on the forehead.
