Down with Chicken Pox

Date: 8 October 2011

I am down with Chicken Pox and that;'s the horrible thing which I can think of. I will be on medical leave for a week staying at home in my room for a week. Gosh .. and the thing is little Grace is around the house so I only stay in my room day and night. Not much I can do except to surf the net, eat and sleep and let it heal on its own. Doctor prescribe me with antiviral medication and some medication to make the chicken pox not so itchy.

This week I will be lack of post for my food blog again Malaysian Foodie and staying at home I perhaps I will clear up my back dated post as well as more reviews on my stuff I have on my hands as well as more to come. I will be surfing and installing games and apps to my IPhone to keep me accompany at this moment and also Ipad time.

Let me goooogle whats about Chicken Pox I can find in the web for reference.

Chickenpox is a viral infection in which a person develops extremely itchy blisters all over the body. It used to be one of the classic childhood diseases. However, it has become much less common since the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, a member of the herpesvirus family. The same virus also causes herpes zoster (shingles) in adults.

Chickenpox can be spread very easily to others. You may get chickenpox from touching the fluids from a chickenpox blister, or if someone with the disease coughs or sneezes near you. Even those with mild illness may be contagious.
