Chicken pox

Chicken pox is caused by a virus called varicella zoster (say: vair-ih-seh-luh zos-ter) and most people who catch it are under 15 years old. Once a person is exposed to the virus, it takes between 2 and 3 weeks before the symptoms appear. Adults who contract chicken pox are usually more ill.

Actually, my two sisters developed chickenpox for the last two weeks. First is from Ainun, most possibly got the virus from her school. Then last few days, the virus has spread out to Azyan. Although they have gone through the vaccination but vaccination is only successful for some people.

I still remember last time when I got chicken pox, (that was in 1993) I have been quarantined by my father because my mum was pregnant and that time also, Ainun started to walk.

That time, my arwah pah and arwah tok wan used daun bambu and this daun bambu is applied during showering. But these days, the traditional method has been transferred with a cream that I might say, it much more convenient.

Anyway, a person who has chickenpox can pass it to someone else by coughing or sneezing. When he coughs, sneezes, laughs, and even talks, teeny tiny drops come out of his mouth and nose. These drops are full of the chickenpox virus. If someone else breathes the drops in or gets them on her hands and touches her mouth or nose, the virus can get in her body. So, this is what Azyan always teased her brother (Shahiran) because he is still save from chicken pox virus.
