    Not trying to be a buzz kill but you may be susceptible to chicken pox v2 aka the shingles. And purely judging from what I read they look like a nightmare... 🙄

    Unfortunately I don't know any remedies that may speed your recovery
    But try your doctors I remember getting a pink smelly lotion as a kid
    Maybe they'll provide you with the lotion?
    Try not to itch them else you'll get marks

    Rest well, you may want to put calamine lotion on the spots to ease the itching. I got chicken pox when I was 16 and found that bathing in warm water soothed it a little bit.

    I'm 24... 😐

    How long did it take for you to get out of isolation?

    My spots are still in the reddish- rash stage. Apparently it's 2-3 days away from being crusted. And how did you almost "die"?? 🐔
