CHICKENPOX 2 Chickenpox The chickenpox also known as Laghu masurika and in medical terms it is called varicella. It is a very common disease that affects most children between the ages of one and ten. The chickenpox is so common that about four-fifths of the world population has suffered from it at one time of their lives or another. The inflammatory response of chickenpox kind of happens in stages. The initial symptoms are cold like. The person will have a runny nose or a stuffy nose, watery eyes, maybe a fever. Two or three days after that, a rash appears on the skin. To begin with the rash is pinkish, after one to two days the color deepens. Then blisters develop on the rash, which kind of look like pimples but they are filled with a fluid. Within another day or two the blisters become cloudy and start to flow out and the blisters start to crust. The initial blisters disappear in a couple days, and new appear.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
