Summary
It is estimated that four million people each year become infected with the chicken pox virus. While most people think of chicken pox as a childhood disease that you get once, the virus can resurface many years later in the form of shingles, a very painful disease. This book discusses these facts, as well as outlining how chicken pox spreads, what the symptoms are, and what treatments are available.
