The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that chickenpox is a very contagious disease which is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). A blister-like rash, itching, tiredness, and fever are seen with this illness. Chickenpox spreads very easily from infected people to other people who have never had chickenpox or who didn’t receive the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox is sometimes serious, particularly in babies, adults, and people who have weakened immune systems. Getting the chickenpox vaccine is the best way to prevent chickenpox.
Heather Brannon, MD reports for About Health that chickenpox is generally a benign self-limited disease and treatment is typically directed at treating symptoms and helping the patient feel more comfortable. Sometimes the antiviral medication acyclovir may be used to help treat chickenpox. Rest, good nutrition and support from family, friends and fans should help Jolie get better soon.
