I've never had them.

When I was a kid my parents tried to bring me around other kids who had the pox... they wanted me to catch them. They were cruel and thought it was funny when I got sick. They eventually grounded me when I wouldn't get sick.

Anyways... I heard there is a vaccination out there... should you get it as an adult?


I could ask my doc but I prefer to follow uninformed opinions when it comes to my health.... :keysoze:

I did not contract chicken pocks until an adult. It was not fun, but no worse than say the flu for a week.

I get a small case of them every time i get the vaccine. So i have stopped receiving the vaccine.

However I just received the MMR without any problems.

I am not against vaccines in general. I think they are a good thing to do unless you have proven reactions to them.

Isn't it more severe and worse for you as an adult?

People say it's worse as an adult.

People say shingles is really bad but you can only get shingles if you had the pox before...

so I guess that means you're fucked either way?

You may have ended getting immunity from exposure though. You can get a blood test to see if you have the immunity. The older you get the worse adult chicken pox can (shingles) get.

I might try the vaccine in hopes of getting them.... I heard they can be in your mouth, underarms, taint...

I'm thinking a new FB photo album documenting all that would be a good idea.
