Well I guess I got lucky that I never got the chicken pox perhaps it was small pox I got shots for. What was the vacinne we used to get that left the little round scar on your arm I know I got it but don't have the scar. I heard if you don't have the scar it didn't take is that true?

I don't think so. I think if you get the shot, you have immunity. Some folks just didn't develop a pock on the injection site.

Jkath, you have my sympathies as well. I have a good friend who was diagnosed just about 10 days ago. Because the outbreak started on her breast, she was afraid that it was inflammatory breast cancer, so she was almost relieved when it turned out to be non-life threatening. But she HURTS. The doctor gave her antivirals and pain meds, also some salve that is supposed to dry up the blisters. She is doing better, but the disease is more than just a rash...you have a systemic viral infection, so take it easy and get better soon.

BT, I doubt that there is ANYTHING you could do to persuade my friend to leave Mexico in favor of New Jersey, but I will certainly convey your tempting and attractive offer. Perhaps if I show her your picture.....
