Hello !

You could either get sick almost imperceptibly or simply not face the infected. The main danger is that you can get infected, and in adults, the disease is often difficult, with complications. In your case, I would recommend getting vaccinated.

Sincerely,

Chickenpox is caused by one of the herpes viruses. Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease. The virus is transmitted from a sick person to a healthy person by airborne droplets. With the air current, chickenpox can spread over long distances (up to 20 m). Infection can also occur from someone with shingles. But the virus is unstable in the external environment. And you can get infected 2 days before the rash and 5-7 after. Also, in rare cases, chickenpox may be asymptomatic, or not typical. No fever and rashes. Depends on the immunity to the herpes virus.

Now there is a vaccine for chickenpox, I made myself and my children. There was an epidemic in the garden, but everyone who was vaccinated did not get sick.

It's not expensive, ask any clinic or hospital they do.

As a child, I was simply isolated at the time of quarantine, but it is possible to transfer the disease in childhood and not diagnose chickenpox. A friend's daughter had a fever without rashes. After the fact, it turned out to be chickenpox. Calculated by the time of infection of others. Don't get sick!
