Chicken Pox!!!

Hey people!!! Hey bloggerfriends..!!! How has the New Year been treating you? I hope everyone has a wonderful start in this beautiful new beginning! I know I certainly have... It will be a year that will forever be edge in my mind! Yup! Guess what?

I got Chicken POX!!!

It’s terrible!!! Seriously! My whole life I have been worrying about not getting chicken pox and finally getting it while I am having some big examination or big event, and though it finally chooses to come out at a perfect time, I couldn't have chosen any other time but

ITS STILL TERRIBLE!!!

Wanna know how it started? Well... I was on my way back from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah to KL on MAS Airlines, when my mum suddenly commented,

"Look at that baby in front of us. Dunno what he has. So poor thing!"

On closer look, I then noticed that the baby had chicken pox! Yup!!!

Aren’t people with chicken pox supposed to be quarantine or something? To stay at home???? I don't blame the little baby, I definitely know how he feels but the parents!!! DOn't they know better???? How can they be so selfish???

ARHG!!!!

People nowadays...

Yeah... so thanks to the very 'educated' parents, i'm currently sitting in front of the computer at 7AM typing my blog because I can't sleep anymore as my back hurts too much to even lie down.

Anyone knows how to treat chicken pox or even make me feel a tinny bit better?

I look like a monster now! Seriously! Its so scary looking at myself in the mirror. Reminds me of Elephant Man. In this case, I'm Elephant Lady.

And people keep warning me not to scratch! But I accidentally scratch of 2 on my face and they're now super horrendous! It’s yellow and... ARGH!!! My face is the worst of all...

*cries*

Someone...

Please help me!!!

One thing though, I really really hope my parents don't get. My mum can't seem to remember whether she got it before anot. Asked her to take a vaccine but she says no point.

Sigh...

Help me now..!!! My body is on fire!!! >.<

awwwwwwwwwww thats no good :( I rem I got Chicken Pox in 1997 or so when my lil niece first got it. Couldnt help it cos we slept in the same room so I got it straight away! It was YUIKKKKKZ! I know how u feel cos I was sooo weak and I looked like some spotted monkey abt to be dead. Yeah it's horrible to get it. Just do one thing...take it easy, dun eat meat, drink lots of water and calm ur mind. Now that u have got it, u can only do one thing...think abt getting better and think positive thoughts. I really hope ur parents dun get it too. Cos I've read that if older ppl get it, it can be dangerous. So ask ur mum to keep away from u as much as possible.


**Aren’t people with chicken pox supposed to be quarantine or something?

So true! I have seen ppl with active Chicken Pox spots on board. It's so not fair. I feel so irritated when I see such ppl cos they r being so selfish and dun seem to care abt spreading germs ard. U should have told the baby's parents that what they were doing was so wrong! I know that Syd airport quarantines ppl with infectious diseases. But who can really tell if someone's carrying germs! Maybe they should provide a full medical report prior to flying.

btw dun worry abt the spots...once u r fully better, all u have got to do is apply Vitamin E cream daily on the marks. They disappear real quickly then :)

there are anti viral medicines now to reduce the number of pox from appearing on the skin, and also to reduce the itch

don worry too much about it, at least you know you will not get it again after this

Oh that's too bad! I got it together with my sister years ago but at least I had someone in my room to fight with when I got too bored. Blogging wasn't heard of then. So at least you have your computer to keep you company.

Anyway, there's a very effective cream you can apply on your face to avoid scarring. I just forgot the name right now.

Hi Shin,

I got chicken pox when i was abt 20yrs old.. (3-4 yrs ago only) It feels horrible! In the end, i passed it on to both my younger sisters cos we were all in the same house & room...

I know it feels terrble & horrible at this time. I totally understand how u felt. Recalling on how i got this super duper infectious virus.. I also duno how i got it. Only remembered tat i went to the doctor twice on the day my bf said tat i might have chicken pox. The stupid doctor in the morning told me its not chicken pox, just some rashes... Gave me some cream & anti-itch tablets to eat... Then now i got this super duper big mark on my right shoulder cos i scratched it. There were 3 spots... :( Thinking it wasn't chicken pox, my bf brought me for a movie after he finished his work.. After the show, more spots appeared on my arms & neck & i started to feel more feverish... Immediately we went back to the same clinic & reprimanded the doctor! He gave me more medication & didnt charge for consultation, only charged for the medication.

Rested 2 whole weeks at home, didnt dare to eat "rubbish". Must choose carefully so in the end, i ate plain porridge or plain bread almost everyday... My frenz & parents told me to stay away from "black coloured food" if i dun wan the spots to turn dark... I listened as i was not as young as my sis who ate & drank everything tat can be eaten or drunk.. Now, she has some dark spots but is fading slowly cos she caught chicken pox when she was still in primary school... Her skin was still in the "growing" stage..

Drinks lots & lots of water. Herbal Tea is also ok. It brings the "heatiness" in the body down. Keep urself covered to prevent urself from scratching. Can get those calamine lotion to apply on the spots to make them less itchy. It is very cooling. My sisters & I applied the lotions on the spots everyday until it wasn't getting too itchy.

As for u, better to ask ur mum to keep away from u, as far as possible if she doesn't want to get it. Its true tat older ppl who gets chicken pox are more health-threatening. They would need double the care & attention you need now.

Take Care!!

You can go to the doctor and request for antibiotic to suppress the pox from popping. It works. You need to take it asap.
