Varicella (chickenpox) is very contagious and difficult to prevent. The period of communicability begins before the appearance of the skin rash, which complicates things. The signs and symptoms of varicella appear 10 to 21 days after infection by the virus. It is contagious starting roughly two days before the skin rash appears and up until the skin lesions crust over. Fortunately, today, varicella is a childhood disease that can easily be prevented owing to vaccination.
