Can You Get Chicken Pox More Than Once?

herpes zoster shingles

I get e-mails all the time asking me, "Can you get Chicken Pox more than once?"

The answer is YES.

While Chicken Pox is mostly known as a childhood illness, it is also extremely common amongst adults.

More and more adults are having the virus come alive again who have suffered from the disease once before as a child.  And to make matters worse, the condition is far more dangerous and serious of a disease to get as an adult.

The adult version of Chicken Pox is known as Shingles.

Shingles usually occurs when one has a weakened immune system.  When your immune system is weak, you're vulnerable to many diseases, Chicken Pox or Shingles being one of them.

Many adults are being hospitalized due to Chicken Pox and Shingles every year – the numbers have increased to almost 11,000 adults per year in the United States.  Over 100 people die every year from the virus.

The only reason WHY you would get Shingles or get Chicken Pox more than once as an adult is because your body didn't build up the immunity to it the first time.

So to answer the question, "Can you get Chicken Pox more than once?"

Yes, it's called Shingles or herpes zoster (HZV).

There are other bad symptoms that go along with it, such as high fever, low energy, insomnia, loss of appetite, etc…

Oh, did I mention the horrible rash that covers your entire body that is ridiculously itchy and uncomfortable?  You'll be covered in fluid-filled blisters that can take WEEKS to heal…

The fastest way to cure the condition if you've had it twice is to begin applying some of the treatments and home remedies found in my e-book program.  It has been known to help hundreds of adults with Shingles and Chicken Pox who have had the condition more than once.

Many of the adults with the virus have cured this disease in only 3 days or less by following the simple steps and method outlined in the book.  I suggest you give it a try and report back the results you experience.

    My daughter has had the chicken pox 4 times now and the doctors have no idea about it. I think it's most likely because her immune system has been weakened some how. We are still looking into it. Your book has been very helpful and I wish I had it the first time. There are even tips on strengthening the immune system to fight it off, which I haven't read anywhere else. Very important thanks.

    You can also get chicken pox twice, as in actual chicken pox and not shingles. Same principle as stated here -you have not built up immunity, and so if you come in contact with someone later in life who currently has chicken pox, you may catch them again.

    So here i a thinking that pox only gets a person once.. so this would mean that even if i’m done with mine, i’m still susceptible for the infection. Thanks for this!
